Who are Bike Queenstown?

About Us

From some of Queentowns early "bike bums" in 2010, to running one of Europes largest MTB holiday companies, it's been an interesting journey but we're stoked to be bringing our knowledge from running Bike Morzine a little closer to home.

Owned & operated by mountain bikers, Bike Queenstown is the essence of "By Riders for riders".

The Bike Queenstown Story

In 2013  party lap provocateur Russ Paver was tired of staying in outdated crappy apartments, over priced airbnbs and hotels with no bike facilities and no interest in accommodating mountain bikers. Bike Morzine was created with one goal in mind: offer incredible mountain bike specific holidays that deliver quality, value for money and make your holiday as a mountain biker easy.

From humble begins of a few mates hosting, riding and partying with the guests, Bike Morzine has grown over the past decade into a fine tuned operation, whilst still remaining humble to its values of fun, inclusivity & friendliness and is now one of Europes biggest MTB holiday providers.

During his race/MTB dirtbag career Russ was one of the early MTB seasonairres to arrive in Queenstown in 2010 and has been living, riding & building trails here ever since.  Seeing Queenstown go from small local scene to one of the best riding destinations in the World, a serious bucket list destination for any serious rider with a thriving MTB community, it was time to bring his experience from Europe a little closer to home and Bike Queenstown was born. 

Run by mountain bikers that have spent many a year riding bikes all over the world, we know exactly what you want from your mtb accommodation: great central locations, affordable prices and above all, accommodation that caters toward you as a mountain biker. Bike storage, Bike washes, workshops and tools. We've got the lot.

We believe that actions speak louder than words, so find out what we get up to below.

Environmental Efforts

We love the mountains. Be it riding mountain bikes in the summer months, skiing in the winter and everything in-between. We're guessing if you're reading this, you're probably in love with the mountains as well.  Sadly the way we enjoy the mountains, the associated seasons and activities we love are massively under threat due to Climate Change. Travel & Tourism is undoubtably one of many contributing factors to this problem and we believe its time companies took responsibility and give something back to the mountains that give us so much.

Let's keep it green.

One Booking = One Tree

When mountain biking it's easy to forget how spoilt we are with the clean air, lush forests and endless mountains. However this is not the case all over the World and with each tree cut down threatens the way we enjoy our this beautiful mountain environment that gives us so much.

In an effort to care for Queenstown mountain biking and the World we live in, Bike Queentown has partnered with the amazing OneTreePlanted and for every booking from October 2020 onwards, we vouch to plant a tree on your behalf , wherever it's most needed around the World. This is Bike Queenstowns gift to you our guests, completely free of charge and although it is only a small step in the right direction, we believe re-forestation to be one of the simplest ways for us to counter the impacts of our Queenstown mountain biking holidays.

Fun, light-hearted & accessible to all.

Mates Races

These are not "races" as you know them; no pressure, no crappy tracks and bon vibes only.

The Bike Morzine race series provides a light-hearted and interesting format to race against your mates.  These races are completely free of charge and aim to bring the Morzine summer community together over their love of riding bikes, all washed down by local beers and good food.

Races you'll never forget & after parties you'll never remember.  

We work with the bike parks and aim to host a series of Mates Races and the Whip Off World Champsionships every summer season. We love hosting these events almost as much as you'll love racing them, all proceeds from donations & bar sales go towards raising money for local charities.

Founder & Director

Russ Paver

Party lap provocateur Russ lives and breathes mountain biking and when he's not chained to the office you'll find him misleading a group of guests on some hidden gems and proclaiming "just another day in Paradise".

Favorite Trail in Queenstown:
"Official trail would either be Thingimajig - BUBBA on Skyline, or Carry on. Unofficial trails are were the fun lies for me."
First Bike:
"Mongoose BMX and my first proper mountain bike was a 24seven Darkangel, a steel DH bike with Monster T's and BMX cranks, it weighed an absolute shittonne but I loved it"

All Time Favourite Bike:
"Santa Cruz Megatower can climb like a mountain goat and it's so goddamn fun on the gnarliest of decents"

Best Queenstown Memory:
"I arrived when I was 17 and was a full on MTB dirtbag living on $100 a week in a tiny house of 8 other mountain bikers, riding everyday and partying all night when we could afford to keep our bikes going or buy beers"
