About Us

I have heard it said many times if your work is your passion, you will never work a day in your life – every day will be your playground!

Hi, my name's Miles Johnson, and after spending 30 years pursuing a career in mechanical engineering (which I have enjoyed immensely) I decided it was time to follow my passion and never work another day - there are so many magical moments when your business is helping people enjoy themselves!

DayTrippers was founded on my passion for riding bikes and a desire to show overseas and local visitors the beautiful Bay of Plenty region. Our tour business provides day (or half day) cycling trips on the latest Giant Fathom 3 electric mountain bikes to explore amazing scenery, eat delicious local produce, have fun and maybe even build new friendships.

DayTrippers can offer one of our selected tours or a customised itinerary to suit your preferences or availability. All our tours use grade 1-2 trails with a focus on amazing local scenery. We offer tour options specifically designed for cruise ship passengers arriving into Port of Tauranga - perfect for those looking for an active adventure in our beautiful Bay of Plenty.

As born & bred New Zealanders, we endeavour to provide an authentic Kiwi experience when you spend a day of adventure with us. This is a family business with its heart firmly planted in the Bay of Plenty city of Tauranga.

We love riding bikes but more we love the joy it brings you guys as our guests. We always see happy faces and that is why we do it!
