Mountain Bike Vacation Guide

For mountain biking’s benefit

Follow the NORBA Code of Ethics

The following is the National Off-Road Biking

Association’s Code of Ethics. Banana Belt Fat Trackers urge you

to follow the code – be a credit to biking.

1. I will yield

the right of way to other non-motorized recreationists. I realize

that people judge all cyclists by my actions.

2. I will slow

down and use caution when approaching or overtaking another and

will make my presence known well in advance.

3. I will maintain

control of my speed at all times and will approach turns in anticipation

of someone around the bend.

4. I will stay

on designated trails to avoid tramping native vegetation and

minimize potential erosion to trails by not using muddy trails

or short-cutting switchbacks.

5. I will not

disturb wildlife or livestock.

6. I will not

litter. I will pack out what I pack in, and pack out more than

my share if possible.

7. I will respect

public and private property, including trail use and no trespassing

signs; I will leave gates as I found them.

8. I will always

be self-sufficient and my destination and travel speed will be

determined by my ability, my equipment, the terrain and present

and potential weather conditions.

9. I will not

travel solo when bike-packing in remote areas. I will leave word

of my destination and when I plan to return.

10. I will practice

minimum impact bicycling by “taking only pictures and memories

and leaving only waffle prints.”

11. I will always

wear a helmet when I ride.
