We asked for a 6.45am shuttle to Matawai so we could ride the Motu Road start to finish. We like to be on the bike early and Motu Shuttles we're happy to help out. The team at Motu Shuttles are happy ,relaxed,friendly and helpful.

We got a couple of awesome Avanti bikes from the team at Motu Trails. The bikes were spot on and the team was absolutely fantastic. It made our Dune Trail ride a breeze.
