Cycling with Panniers and Bike Trailers

There are 50+ squeeze bars across the cycle trail network which have been installed to prevent motorbikes from accessing the cycle trail.

These are inconvenient for cyclists using pannier bags, bike trailers and trike bikes.  

If trail users require access through gates please contact Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail Trust email:

  • Eastern side of SH15 crossing (near Kaikohe Aerodrome) through to Lucas Road, Moerewa.  

Bioloo toilets across the cycle trail network will also be closed and signs will be installed at key locations across the network.

If you are out on the cycle trail please maintain social distancing of 2m, and wear a mask.
