The same riders were later allegedly seen driving dangerously again in Ohauiti, resulting in one arrest.
A 20-year-old man will appear in court next month on a number of driving charges.
Police said inquiries to find the remaining alleged riders were continuing and a number of bikes had been impounded.
Acting Senior Sergeant Wayne Hunter said what the riders were allegedly doing was dangerous and could have resulted in serious injury to a member of the public, or to the riders.
Police were committed to finding the remaining alleged offenders.
