Alert Level 2 Returns For The Hauraki Rail Trail

The Hauraki Rail Trail will remain open for riders to enjoy at Covid-19 Alert Level 2.  Self-registration will not be required.  In line with Government guidelines, Community sports are limited to groups of 100 in a defined space.

Under Alert Level 2 we continue to have some freedom of movement, however it’s up to each one of us to keep the rest of New Zealand safe.


Key Considerations For Safe Riding

Keep your distance in public from people you do not know (ideally 2 metres).

Please use common sense.  Don’t ride the Trail if you have symptoms (e.g. fever, coughing, shortness of breath). Stay home. Don’t socialise.

Keep a track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen.

You can travel to ride the Trail, but make sure you do it in a safe way.  You should minimise the number of places you stop on the way to your destination.

Avoid touching gates, handrails, fences, benches and picnic tables.  The virus can remain on surfaces for three days.

When approaching others slow down so it’s easier to maintain separation, and always give way to walkers.  Be calm, be kind, be responsible and show the community you care.

Wash your hands and disinfect your bike when you get home.
