Welcome to

Westside Rides


We are a small family run business, located in the village of Woodstock, about 6 km east of Hokitika, on the West Coast of the South Island.

Here we have accommodation in the form of a self-contained cottage overlooking the Hokitika River & the Southern Alps.

Our aim is to provide a hospitable environment for those who wish to explore and ride the plethora of mountain bike tracks the area has to offer, especially the new Westland Wilderness Trail
(Also known as the Westcoast Wilderness Trail.)

There are trails to suit all mountain biking skill levels & for those wishing to try cycling offroad for the first time, we’re more than happy to take you out for some coaching on some of the gentler trails.

We are also able to arrange other activities, such as kayaking, paddle boat cruises, bush walks, & even a wee explore of some of the regions fine old Hostelries. Please click on to the other pages for more details.
