Do I need to wear a helmet?

What if I get a puncture or other mechanical breakdown?

For this reason spare tubes are provided so you have the option to attend to any punctures yourself, which will most likely be your quickest option. However, the tour operator is happy to come out if this is your preference.

Covid-19: means uncertain times…
We understand there is a lot of uncertainty around making plans with the threat of Covid-19 related travel alerts interfering with travel bookings. We have added some special conditions for bookings on multiday tours operating from September 2020 onwards affected by Covid-19 to help you book in confidence:
Should New Zealand Government alert level 3 or 4 travel restrictions prevent a New Zealand resident booked on a Tākaro Trails Multiday Cycle Tour from travelling, we will apply a no questions asked policy.
For all cancellations due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will transfer 100% of the tour costs paid to any future tour or you can choose a refund. The refund will be based on the tour costs minus any fees from our accommodation providers less an admin fee of $50 per person.
