Do I need a helmet?

  • New Zealand law states cyclists must wear an approved cycle helmet when biking on public roads. All Waihi Bicycle Hire helmets comply and are supplied free with your bike.


  • Cyclists share the road with motor vehicles.
  • Please show consideration to other trail users and ride on the left, in single file so as not to endanger others.
  • You must follow the New Zealand road rules and we recommend that you wear bright clothing.
  • A copy of the road code for cyclists is available.
  • If you are consuming alcohol, be aware that you must follow the drink-driving laws as per a motorised vehicle.
  • Use clear arm signals when you intend to slow down, turn or stop.
