The fine print - You need to read this!

- Minimum rider age is 18 years.

- All riders must have kneepads, gloves and a helmet - we strongly recommend a full face helmet.

- There are no guides and no bike patrol. Riders must stay in groups and look out for each other, be self-sufficient (as you would on any big ride) and be prepared for awesome riding in a beautiful and remote location. 

- All riders must be at the front gate before 8.00 in the morning, ready to drive in convoy through to Barrys flat. There is now an active forestry operation on the access road meaning that it is closed with gates locked during the day. You cannot turn up late or leave early (except for medical emergency). 

- We operate rain or shine.  If the shuttles are being cancelled the next day due to extreme weather you will be informed by 8.00pm the evening prior by email, and you will be able to transfer your booking to another day.  

NMTBC reserves the right to cancel a  scheduled shuttle day for any reason that it deems fit, including if there are low numbers booked for a day.  Riders already booked on these days will be given the opportunity to transfer their booking to another day, or get a refund.

- All changes to booking need to be done with at least 7 days notice. We do not change bookings last minute or provide refunds for last minute cancellations by riders. Unfortunately we have to work with strict access requirements and on-site communications are difficult due to the remote location/limited phone and internet access so we are forced to operate a fairly inflexible booking system. Your understanding is appreciated.

-If you cancel a booking a refund will not be automatically issued.  You are best to change the date of your booking or contact our administrator.

-Please note that you will be responsible for returning a radio if you are given one.  These are an important part of the safety for all riders and are very valuable.  You will be required to replace it, if it is lost or badly damaged.
