Safety tips and road rules

  • Make sure your bike is mechanically sound for the day's riding to avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown along the route

  • Carry a repair kit and know how to change both front and rear tyre tubes

  • On these trails you are never far from a farmhouse, but it is advisable to carry a basic medical kit. There is mobile phone coverage over most areas, depending on your provider.

  • Be seen - visibility is important, so wear bright colours. A pulse headlight and tail light is recommended

  • Cyclists must obey traffic rules and road signs, same as other road users.

  • Bicycle helmets must be worn

  • Cyclists must ride on the left side of the road.

  • Ride no more than two abreast, however it is safer to ride in single file over crests and in blind corners on many of these country roads. On a gravel lane it may be safer to wait for any dust to settle after a vehicle has passed.

  • Be careful not to go too fast downhill on gravel roads. The bike can become difficult to control if you come across loose gravel or corrugations in the road.
