Leave No Trace

  • Avoid wet and muddy trails, which are susceptible to rutting and damage.
  • Do not cut switchbacks or create cheater lines.
  • Pull to the edge of the trail—not off the trail—when yielding to other users, repairing your bike or taking a break.
  • Take all items you brought with you.

Control Your Bike

  • Always adhere to speed regulations and recommendations.
  • Always ride within your limits.

Yield to Others

  • Mountain bikers generally should yield to all other trail users.
  • Uphill riders typically have the right-of-way.
  • When rounding blind corners, slow down and call out or ring a bell to let other users know you’re coming.

Respect Others and Animals

  • Give animals and other people room and time to adjust to your presence.
  • Don’t assume an animal notices you, and don’t intentionally sneak up on them.

Plan Ahead

Before you visit a trail system, do some research to ensure that:

  • The trails and conditions are within your ability level.
  • Your bike is in good working order.
  • You’re prepared with the necessary tools and parts to make common trailside repairs such as a spare tube or tubeless repair kit, tire levers, a multi-tool, a pump or CO2 inflator and a replacement chain link.
  • You have enough food and water to sustain yourself for the ride.
  • You’re wearing a helmet!


Just Be Nice

  • Say hello and thank you to fellow trail users.
  • It doesn’t cost anything, and it goes a long way in creating goodwill toward mountain bikers.
  • Be a smiling, friendly mountain biker!

Shout Out Your Group

  • If someone pulls over to let you pass, let them know if more riders are coming along behind you.
  • A simple “just me” or “two more” will let the person know what to expect and when the trail is clear.

Step Aside

  • No matter how speedy you are, there is almost always someone quicker.
  • Its proper bike etiquette for the slower rider to pull aside—when there’s room to do so safely—and let the faster rider pass.

No Tailgating

  • Riding too close to another rider can cause accidents.
  • If you find yourself behind a slower rider, call out that you’d like to pass and give them a chance to pull out of the way safely.
  • Don’t forget to say thank you.

Stay Out of the Way

  • Whether you’re stopped at a trailhead or fixing a flat, its inconsiderate―and dangerous―to block the trail by spreading out across it.
  • Find a safe place to stop off the main path.
