Bike tracks opening

Date posted: 19 December 2012

Mountain bikers will have access to an exciting range of shared use trails at Cleland Conservation Park from Saturday 22 December.

Sections of the park's management track network, marked green, blue and black according to their degree of difficult - black being the most challenging - will allow riders to enjoy their sport and connect with nature at the same time.

Riders are asked to use the Shared Trail Map to plan their rides in advance and to keep to designated trail surfaces in order to protect the surrounding environment.

The international Trail Users Code of Conduct will also be applied to allow trails to be shared safely, and include the following points: 

  • plan your ride
  • comply with all signs
  • ride only on formed tracks/trails
  • share the trail - obey give way rules
  • avoid riding in wet, muddy conditions
  • ride lightly and leave no trace or rubbish
  • control your bike within your limits
  • clean your bike to avoid the spread of weeds or plant diseases
  • carry sufficient food and drinking water
  • respect the rights of others
  • tell others about the code.

A shared use trail network is also available in Sturt Gorge Recreation Park.
