INCREASED HIRE PRICES & SPECIAL OFFER FOR HIRE & 1-HOUR TUITION, FOR BOOKINGS MADE DURING WINTER CLOSURE

Unfortunately, the rising cost of fuel has forced us to increase our individual bike hire prices by $25 per bike for next season.  This is the first increase in 5+ years, so we very much hope you will understand.  

However, for hire and tuition packages, please use the Special Offer we are running over winter, which will save you $20 for next season's hires on bookings made whilst we're closed.  We've extended our Awesome Autumn Adventure (1 hour tuition, 1-day bike hire, protective gear & fuel) for bookings made during July and August.  The hire must be taken before 27th November 2022.  To take advantage of this offer, go to the Booking tab above.  

Thank you to our Thundercross whanau for your support and encouragement; we couldn’t do this without you.

Dirt Bike Hire

(SEE SCHEDULE BELOW FOR DETAILS OF HIRE BIKES & PRICES FOR 1-DAY 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, so you will be in good hands.  Our experienced Thundercross team will look after you.   

All the protective gear you need to ride safely at Thundercross is provided and is part of the bike hire fee:  shirt, pants, boots, gloves, goggles and chest protector.  (Bike and all protective gear are commercially washed after each hire).

Hire price includes 1 bike hire for the day, all protective gear, Park fee & fuel*.  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.

Hire bikes are allocated per individual rider, according to size and experience.  In the interests of safety, they are not to be shared, swapped or ridden by anyone other than the designated rider.  

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.

TUITION

James, is a champion rider and NZ's most experienced dirt bike coach.  He and our experienced Thundercross Team offer a range of training, from basic riding skills to advanced coaching.  Bring your own bike or hire one of ours! 

If you are a beginner, we recommend two hours' tuition to maximize 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 personalized 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.
