The Taff Trail

The Mountain Bike Code

(although you don't need a mountain bike to enjoy the Taff Trail the following is good advice)

Ride in control at all times. This preserves you, other users and the environment.

Respect the rights of others. Take pride in sharing the outdoors with people enjoying other forms of recreation.

Be considerate towards walkers. A speeding bike can frighten walkers. Use a bell or call out to announce your presence. Give them right of way. Pass at no more than twice their walking speed.

Always give way to horses. Horses are easily frightened by bikes. A spooked horse can endanger you and its rider. Announce your presence, stop and talk to the rider as the horse passes. Be alert for signs of horses on the track (hoof prints or droppings).

Avoid skidding. Do not cut corners, stay on the track. Do not ride where cycling is not permitted or where public access is prohibited.

Wash your bike tyres before riding in a different area. This will reduce the chance of spreading plant diseases.

Avoid introducing road rage to the trails.

Be an ambassador for your sport, tell other people about this code.
