Dirt Bike Hire

Bring your own bike or we can hire you a dirt bike to suit your size and experience.  

If you can ride a two-wheel pedal bike confidently; stopping/starting/steering and braking, you can ride a dirt bike.  From approximately 5 years upwards; our most senior hirer is 80 years old!

No motorcycle licence or experience necessary.  (Tuition available for a separate fee) We carry the Adventure Mark safety accreditation and James is NZ's most experienced dirt bike coach.  

We include all the protective gear you need to ride safely at Thundercross Valley including helmet, shirt, pants, boots, gloves, goggles and chest protector.  (Bike and all protective gear are commercially washed after each hire).

Please book your hire bike well in advance.  We do not take bookings on the day and would hate you to have a wasted journey.  To make a booking please go to the "Booking" tab at the top of this page.

Hire price includes protective gear, ride fee & fuel for day.  Prices shown below include gst. Please note that a booking fee of 1.95% & credit card fee, if applicable, plus a 50% fully refundable Bond will be added to the costs at the time of booking and are displayed as Taxes & Fees on the booking page.  This Bond is refundable the week after hire.  

*Prices quoted are for one whole day's hire. We do not offer hourly hire nor half-days.  This is not a 'couple of hours' experience that can be rushed.  (Registration, induction and kitting-up take at least an hour).  We have 750 acres of beautiful Park to ride in; relax, enjoy, bring a picnic and make a day of it.

TUITION

James & his son Nik, both champion riders and experienced coaches, offer training ranging from basic riding skills to intermediate.  Bring your own bike or hire one of ours! 

If you are a beginner, we recommend two hours' tuition to maximise your safety, comfort and enjoyment.  Please note we will not hire a bike to beginners without at least one hours' tuition from us.  

Whatever your skill level, be it total beginner riding for the first time, or a more experienced rider wanting to advance your skills with personalised training, you have come to the right place.  James is New Zealand's most experienced dirt bike coach; you will be in good hands.  All tuition is taken at your own pace, with no pressure.  

If hiring a bike, tuition fees are in addition to the bike hire and coaching must be booked at the same time as the hire bike.

BOND:

Hireage of gear and bikes is subject to our Terms and Conditions including a fully-refundable bond of 50% which is payable at the time of booking.  It is rare that we need to deduct anything from your bond for damages and, should this be necessary, it will be by prior notification. The Bond is refunded to your credit card or nominated bank account, depending on how you paid for the hire, during the week following hire. We are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (as that is our weekend), so it will be Wednesday at the earliest before your Bond is refunded; that gives us time to check, clean and maintain all the bikes

To avoid disappointment, we recommend you reserve your hire bike and gear before you come out to Thundercross.  Please press the Booking button at the top of each page secure your reservation.
