Code of Practice
MOUNTAIN BIKE TRACK SERVED BY CHAIR LIFT ACCESS CODE OF PRACTICE
Mountain biking is a hazardous sport. Tracks at Glencoe mountain with chair uplift are extremely steep & difficult in places. The downhill tracks have been designed for competition and should only be attempted by experienced cyclists. You may fall or have to walk sections. Glencoe Mountain Limited accept no liability for any loss or injury arising from your participation in Mountain biking and use of our bike tracks.
Take Care All users must read, complete & sign a Participation Statement before buying tickets. Those aged 15 and under must be accompanied by and have a parent/guardian to sign for them. Minimum age for riding the tracks is 10 years - children aged between 10 - 15 years MUST be supervised by an adult.
Is your bike suitable? Bikes designed for downhill & cross country trails often have disc brakes & full suspension. You are entirely responsible for the state of repair of your own bike and for ensuring it is in sufficiently good condition for use on the tracks.
Where can you cycle? On the mountain you may only cycle on the designated downhill & cross country tracks. For the future it is vitally important to prevent erosion so please do not cut corners. Any customer cutting corners or riding in non designated areas may be asked to leave the mountain.
Remember other users. There may be other cyclists & walkers on the track. Treat others with consideration. Slow down. If you stop on the track please step aside to let others pass. Let faster cyclists pass you. NO i-pods (or similar) whilst riding.
Obey the signs and instructions from staff. They are all their for YOUR safety and the safety of others. Ride with care when passing people working on the tracks.
Accidents! We suggest that you do not cycle alone, bring a friend, even if just to spectate. In the event of a serious accident, please report it to either top or bottom of the access chair. We need to know the nature of the accident and where it has occurred.
Helmets & insurance! You must wear a helmet when riding any of our tracks but full face helmets and body armour are mandatory for the Black Track and are advised for the other down hill track. Consider your insurance situation; are you insured for personal injury and 3rd party liability?
Failure to comply! You will be banned from taking your bike on the chair for a specific period depending on the infringement. There will be no refund of money paid for the rider of the mountain bike in this case.
