Senior Constable Chris Hill says the train was heading towards Kawerau when the cyclist, coming from the Matapihi side of the rail crossing, tried to cross in front of it.
He says the train clipped the cyclist, who was not hurt in the collision and was seen to be walking away from the incident.
“It’s not rocket science. People need to look both ways.”
