THE New Rally Site is at Waiouru (Not Horopito)

Hey guys and gals.

In case of any confusion, we would like to clarify that the 2019 rally (and any future rallies) will definitely be at the SAME site as last year, which is 2km out of Waiouru (heading towards Ohakune) .

It has been brought to our attention that an ad in the events section of the latest Bike Rider Magazine states that this years rally is at Horopito.

This is NOT correct.

It was a fantastic rally last year and we hope to see you all back this year. Ps. Bring ya mates!

Please share this post and/or let anyone else know that may not be on Facebook.

Cold Kiwi 2018 Thanks to the people who made it happen

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!

About the New Site . Please read

Hi everyone, just a couple of friendly reminders:

As per usual there is a firm rule of NO B.Y.O. … Why you may ask? This is because it breaches our liquor license. I’m sure none of you would want to be the reason there’s no refreshments at the Cold Kiwi! Confiscations apply. Please support the RMCC by buying at the bar and help keep the rally going!

On another note, the land the rally is held on is once again a private farm, with a huge area of it being kindly lent to us for the weekend.
Under NO circumstances are you to enter the property outside of rally times. Also please stay within the boundaries laid out by the club.
We are very greatful to the Frew family for allowing the Cold Kiwi to be held on their land and would appreciate your respect in this matter.
The RMCC hopes you have a safe and happy ride to and from the rally.
See ya there, enjoy!
Thank you!

All New Cold Kiwi Site 2018

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.

Check out the comments on Facebook


Update 18 August from the Secretary 

Trailers will be taken or escorted into the site by transfer staff . All trailers and and vehicles will be checked for BYO.


Speed limit for all venicles is SLOW


Up date ends

Question has come up on Cold Kiwi Facebook regarding Campervans etc so here it is from the RMCC . All camping is in the Event Area , No Camping in the Carpark .No cars are permitted into the Event Area . There is area to park near the Gate , recommended for light vehicles . This year trailers will be allowed into the event area . these will be towed in by the club and a fee of $20 will apply . No BYO at all . Any questions email

Question that has come up for Completed Orders . You can print out a copy of the email you receive to say your payment has been received and Order Status is Completed Order but you can save it in your smart phone and show that at the gate.

Paying by credit card ? Sorry, we don’t have a credit card facility, but you can use your online banking to pay by credit card , be aware that you may be charged as a cash advance . Good news is that there will be Eftpos at the site.

Pre-pay orders are coming in nicely , thank you to those early birds . Just a reminder that Cold Kiwi is on Fathers Day and all Cold Kiwi Virgins are welcome.

Meals at Cold Kiwi . Food is available 24/7 from the Caravan . Menus coming soon
