On behalf of the Ruapehu Motorcycle Club, we would like to sincerely thank the following people, as without their help, the Cold Kiwi 2018 would not have happened:
Special thanks to The Christian Riders who helped out running the gate and numerous other tasks, they also supplied the bike hoist for the burnout. Another big thanks goes out to Drury Motorcycles, Des and his team did the tyre changes for the burnout – cheers guys/gals.
The amount of tome, effort and resources put in by these guys has been huge, which we are all grateful for – Thank You!

As announced by Mat On Facebook . Cold Kiwi has an all new site !
No small effort by the club but it looks like we’re able to confirm the details for the 43rd Cold Kiwi 2018.
The site entrance is about 2.5kms west of Waiouru, heading towards Ohakune. It’s not cricket pitch flat but it’s mostly a gentle lean with some flat tops. Free draining pumice soil, a hill climb, short access road and mountain views. Most importantly we don’t believe this site will chop up and turn to mud.
