Motorcycle permits limited to 2 bikes per permit
Monday 8th September, 2014
We are getting an increasing number of people applying for Motorcycle permits to go riding in our Flagstaff and Kaitangata forests - which is great, as our aim is to have everyone who wants to ride a motorcycle in our forests on a current permit.
However there has been a trend for applicants to name increasing numbers of extra bikes on their permit applications. We have therefore decided to limit the number of bikes allowed per permit to two. If you plan to have a larger party riding, please apply for separate permits for each rider, or if this is not possible then contact us to arrange a special event permit.
