About Fat Tyre

Queenstown's only mountain bike guiding specialists. Our ultimate objective is to offer you the best rides you’ve ever had!

Who We Are

Fat Tyre Adventures burst into existence in 2001 when owner/operator Greg McIntyre could no longer contain his passion for mountain biking and took a leap to start his own guiding business. Queenstowns undisputed mountain bike guiding experts, setting the standard for delivering the best mountain biking Queenstown has.

We have private and Department of Conservation land concessions on five different mountain ranges giving you the ability to access rides that no one else can. The trails are mostly enduro, very natural with amazing scenery, a range of rocky steep, narrow trails or fast open smooth trails with the odd cow and sheep (it is New Zealand!). On the ‘gravity’ trails the descents are huge with some offering over 1800m of down hill

We are born and breed local riding enthusiasts and will show you the hundreds of kilometres on thousands of hectares of private high country sheep farms and conservation land we have access to. . All well away from the crowded trails close to town.

Sustainability.
Where possible, we buy local. Our styley biking merchandise comes from a Christchurch based company and our t-shirts are printed in Queenstown. We grow our own veges and feed the scraps to the hungry worms in the work farm. World famous in NZ, we offer Em's power cookie as trail snacks - both 100% pure kiwi hearty health bar. If we visit a café or Pub at the end of a ride, we go local and of course we always drink local beer and wine.

Recycling.
With Greg’s Scottish and Ange’s Dutch blood, our home and office is a veritable recycling mecca – even the bike inner tubes are recycled into tree ties and our worms love chomping their way through old invoices and egg cartons.
