Clothing

Protective clothing and equipment are mandatory for young riders. The best protection from injury requires a properly fitted full-faced helmet, gloves, long pants, long sleeves, leg armour, arm armour and solid running shoes.

Equipment

The trails are specifically designed for full suspension mountain bikes. The trails are rocky, bumpy and become much more difficult without high-quality suspension. Without full suspension, fatigue becomes a factor much sooner. The steep grades necessitate disc brakes for adequate stopping power. Cantilever brakes will increase the fatigue factor as more effort will be required to maintain control. All Bike Park participants should ride a properly sized bike and should be able to stand over the seat with their feet flat on the ground. A bike that is too large or with a high seat post increases the risk of injury.

Trails

The level of risk increases with the level of difficulty. Black trails often have significant drops and jumps that require skill and experience to navigate. Young riders become a hazard to other riders if they are unable to ride a trail or move out of the way. Children should be accompanied by an adult at all times and should be monitored for fatigue regularly.
