A few pointers
We are keen on keeping trail biking a great way of combining being in nature with adrenaline even in the future, and we believe that you feel the same. Therefore, it’s essential that we respect each other on the trails, and that we all help keeping the environment we bike in clean and healthy. When coming across people enjoying nature in other ways than on a bike, sharing the area with them and respecting their choice is of course the right thing to do.
Respect that trails can be closed at times, for example after a storm,
for maintenance or when there is hunting in the area.
Leave no trace
Everything you brought on the ride you bring back home or dispose of in a public bin.
Stay in control
Pay attention to changing weather and conditions, and ride accordingly.
Expect to come across other people on the trails, ride in such a way that you have
control and can choose where to go.
Make yourself heard
When meeting people on the trails, let them hear you. Slow down, you’re not racing!
Give space and greet with a smile. A little friendliness goes a long way!
Animals are often frightened by sudden moves or sounds, make gentle noise in order to
alert them and give time for them to observe you.
Plan your ride
Make sure your bike is in a good working condition before heading for the trails.
Get to know the area you’re biking in. Bring spares, tools, clothes and a phone on
your ride. If biking alone, tell someone where you’re headed and when they
should expect you back.
