Hire a combo of 1 adult and 1 child's two-wheel dirt bikes to receive $50 off each bike.  Go to the Booking tab at the top of this page and use the Promo Code SKLHOL when prompted.  (T&C apply.  Fees are exclusive of gst, booking fee and, if applicable, credit card fee)

We have 25 hire bikes to suit all ages, sizes and experience.  No motorcycle licence or experience necessary.  

Bike hire fee includes ride fee & fuel for the day plus all the protective gear you need to ride safely including helmet, shirt, pants, boots, gloves, goggles and chest protector.  (Bike and all protective gear are commercially washed after each hire).  

Prices shown below exclude gst, booking fee & credit card fee, if applicable.  

At the time of booking, a 50% fully refundable Bond will be added to the costs and is included in the Taxes & Fees, along with the gst and booking fee.  This Bond is refundable the week after hire.  

Prices 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.

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. James & his son Nik, both champion riders and experienced coaches, offer training ranging from basic riding skills to intermediate

1.   Hire prices are exclusive of GST, which will be added at 15% per hire & included in the Taxes & Fees

2. A Bond of 50% per hire is added at the time of Booking and is also included in Taxes and Fees.  This Bond is fully refundable during the week following hire, once the bikes have been cleaned and checked.

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 and is included in Taxes & Fees on your booking confirmation.  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 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.
