Code of Conduct

Mountain bike riding involves a high degree of personal risk and should be undertaken with care and regard for the riding conditions at all times. For the safety and enjoyment of all users, the following code of conduct applies:

Ride safely:
  • Always wear a helmet and appropriate safety gear.
  • Know your ability and ride within your limits.
  • The Harcourt mountain bike trails must be ridden in an anti-clockwise direction.
  • Inspect all trails, jumps and technical trail features before proceeding. 
Respect others:
  • Look out for slower riders.
  • Let your fellow trail users know you're coming - a friendly greeting or bell ring are good methods.
  • Anticipate other trail users as you ride around corners. 
  • Be aware that walkers and horse riders also use the Park.
  • Stay within the Park boundaries and do not trespass on private property.
Respect the environment:
  • Stay in the existing mountain bike trails, do not take short cuts and do not create new trails.
  • Avoid skidding as it damages the trails.
  • Look out for wildlife, including snakes.
  • Take your rubbish with you.
  • Keep your bike clean to reduce the spread of weeds.
  • Respect trail closure signs. Do not ride on closed trails. 
Warning:

The Park includes jumps, drops and technical features and is unsupervised. All users of the Park do so entirely at their own risk. Mountain biking by its nature is a dangerous sport. The trails and various technical features have been designed to cater for a wide variety of rider abilities. Please ride within your ability and on trails and features that are suitable to your skill level. 

Children must be supervised at all times.
