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 nominated bank account 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.
