Back in March 2020, the New Zealand Government took action in the fight against COVID-19 and shut down our borders to international visitors. New Zealand’s fight against the Coronavirus is still ongoing, but we have won many important battles so far in protecting New Zealander’s. The staggered lockdown has had 4 stages ranging from Level 4 (full lockdown) to Level 1 which is basically back to “normal” for NZ residents with precautions including boarder restrictions. So New Zealand Mountain Biking is remaining in operation for our skills clinics and tours. But stick with us, we are ready to go as soon as the boarders open up again to tourists.
As Covid-19 rears its ugly head, we move through the alert levels to ensure New Zealand keeps it under control. We all want it to return to some sort of normality as soon as possible. We have recently had community transmission and right away the alert levels have been altered accordingly. The NZ government has been well respected internationally with how quickly it acts. New Zealand has been really good at its pandemic response. We have full faith in how the government continue to handle it.
To the locals
We remain open through alert level 2! We are running Private Skills Clinics in Rotorua and following all guidelines. Any concerns with bookings and we remain flexible. Any concern with your health before a lesson or we move up alert levels, we remain understanding and will reschedule.
To the Internationals
For all of you that are patiently waiting to come on a riding holiday from the rest of the world, we are excited to have you as soon as we can. As the situation evolves, we adapt. We still have epic riding, and there is still more trail being built while the favorites are being maintained. We want you to know that all of our partners are still doing ok and are also excited to fire thing up and host you all on your epic adventures!

What we are doing to keep you safe
Currently we are operating under our Covid-19 Risk Reduction plan and are doing what we can to remain open and keep our customers safe. Because we are outside and are running small groups, we are naturally in good stead. By contact tracing, preparing our guides with a few extra procedures, and following the guidance and regulations of the New Zealand Government, we are doing all we can to keep our customers, our communities, and ourselves safe.
