Cancellation Policy: We are trying to keep things as simple as possible with the administration side of things hence there are no ride fee refunds given. Before entering please work out that you really want to participate in the ride, have a roadworthy motorcycle fit for purpose and are available on the ride date.

Our rides run wet or fine with some alterations to routes if the conditions are unsuitable. Our rides are generally undertaken either SATURDAY or SUNDAYS so check with this ride calendar that you have the correct day programmed in. If minimum rider numbers are not met for a particular ride and NGARNZ advise it will not be going ahead a full ride refund will be given.

Note – Applicable to all guide led rides – Guide Led rides can be altered without notice by NGARNZ if unsuitable conditions or lack of land access exist. Should a situation arise due to injury, accident, breakdown or other unplanned event the ride maybe modified to allow for appropriate action(s).

With most of NGARNZ rides there are no support vehicles following therefore we recommend you belong to a roadside rescue service such as AA or similar, so in the event of breakdown your motorcycle can be retrieved for you. We will assist as much as possible to get your motorcycle up and running should it suffer from breakdown or sustain damage for whatever reason.
If you decide to BYO your lunch and the group stops at a retail lunch venue most retail outlets are not okay with your BYO lunch being consumed on their premises.
