Every user is encouraged to register to ride by making a minimum annual donation of $40 per adult, $25 per child (14 years and under). This money will go towards trail maintenance and is vital for the sustainability of the Park.
Donors will receive a map and two coloured plastic tags. One tag is for your bike – very uncool to be seen without one – and a smaller one for your key ring to be flashed around town.
Many businesses in the Bay of Islands have volunteered incentives to encourage bike riders to donate in this way. The key tag is their way of knowing who you are. The tag colour changes each year, we will send you a reminder when your tag is about to expire.
Register and collect tags onsite at Paihia Mountain Bikes. OR Register online and pick up your tags from Paihia Mountain Bikes at the entrance of the Waitangi MTB Park.
We have had a number of requests from visitors who are keen to donate, but are only here for a day, or who can only ride for one day – and are not keen for the annual registration. So, in response to this we are have introduced a ‘one day’ $10 donation option for visitors.
As a ‘one day donors’ you are provided with a luggage tag style sticker with the days date on it, which once removed from your bike, can be used similarly to the annual tags – they can be used for the great incentives offered around town – but only for that one day. So remember to remove it from your bike after your ride.
This option also comes with a free map.
This option is currently ‘pay on pick up’ and is available onsite at Paihia Mountain Bikes, based at the entrance of the Waitangi MTB Park
