RULES & CONDITIONS OF ENTRY

Our aim is to provide organised trail riding events for the public to come and ride on private property, through marked and surveyed countryside, with all the trails being in one direction only.

Club officials and First Aid Officers are in attendance to provide assistance if riders have an accident and are injured. We also send out sweep riders around the track, their job is to monitor the track and to assist were possible with any problems or injuries on the track. Most sweep riders will have a radio with them to report back to base any problems/injuries that have occurred on the track, this is to ensure a quick and safe recovery.

Please note that it is a condition of entry that ALL persons under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a responsible adult (Parent or Guardian). Proof of age will be required. No membership, licence, or vehicle registration is required to ride an RTCB Trail Ride Series event.

No Quads or Trikes are allowed at Trail Rides.

ABOUT THE PROPERTIES

  • Privately owned farmland;
  • Flora and Fauna is protected;
  • Property is available for the duration of the trail ride only; and
  • Unauthorised entry at other times will be dealt with as trespassing and will result in the property being unavailable for future use.

RIDE INFORMATION

There are 3 areas that are established:

1. Pee Wee Track
This track is for the riders that are inexperienced and are learning, and those that are on Pee Wee 50’s that are too little to make it around the Learner trail.

The track consists of a flat section of land that is clearly marked out with tape the whole way round with a few bends so as to give some turning practice. Riders that are very comfortable riding this track may want to progress to the Learner trail.

2. Learner Trail
This trail consists of many elements of an enduro trail but is set up so that learner riders are able to complete the trail.

The Learner trail is for those that are not yet capable of doing the Open trail. The only experienced riders that may use this trail are those that are following a learner rider around the trail to assist them. Riders that are very comfortable riding this trail may want to progress to the short loop of the Open trail.

3. Open Trail
The Open trail is for experienced riders. This trail has every thing in it that the terrain has to offer, hill climbs and decents, fire roads, rocks, creeks, sand, mud, everything that an enduro trail should have.

The trail is typically divided into 2 loops, a long and a short loop. The short loop is basically there to cater for those less experienced riders that find the Learner trail too easy and the long loop too challenging. The long loop may be divided into sections so keep a look out for our well signed SPLIT/s and trail MERGE/s.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is camping allowed at the event?
All our events are a one day trail ride only. No camping is available at the venues. Some camping may be available within the local region near the venues – please search Google for more info.

Will I be able to ride with steel cap work boots at one of your events?
It is up to each rider to ensure they have appropriate protective gear for their own safety. There is also a little guidance about that on our website here.

Are kids, on small bore bikes, who are competent riders, allowed on the short (or main) enduro loop?
Yes, access to all our trails is based on the riders ability (self assessment), not age or bike size. Remember, Parents/Guardians are responsible for their kids during the event.

Does “Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a Parent/Guardian, who will be responsible for them while at the event”, mean that the responsible adult must ride with them on the trails?
No, but Parents/Guardians are responsible for their children under the age of 18 during the event. When a child is on the peewee trail a parent or guardian must be in attendance at all times. Please make sure your children understand the event rules here before participating in the event.

Do you allow Pit Bikes at your trail rides?
All types of 2 wheel bikes are permitted at our events. It is up to the entrants to self assess that their bike is in a safe condition. The other requirement is that they must have an effective muffler fitted so that we don’t get any noise pollution issues. Most standard exhaust systems will comply.

Do you allow Quad Bikes at your trail rides?
NO, only 2 wheel bikes are permitted at our events.
