Safety is of primary concern at Kevard Adventures.
The nature of our sport is such that despite all precautions, accidents can happen. At Kevard Adventures, through the use of warning boards, and extensive use of candy tape, hazards on the track are marked and red Day-Glo markers are used to show the route. (Similar marking style to Hare Scramble Marking)
Although as much attention as possible is given to marking the track as safely as possible, Kevard Adventures cannot be held responsible for markers and hazard markings which are damaged or removed by riders during the course of an event. Riders need to ride with caution and excercise common sense when they approach a section of the track which they deem to be technical or potentially dangerous.
No riders will be allowed to participate in a ride unless their bike is in good working order and the rider is wearing protective clothing.
Protective clothing (as addressed below),
- Helmet with a chin strap
- Long pants
- Reasonable footwear
Riding boots are preferable but should a rider arrive with normal boots or covered shoes they will be allowed onto the intermediate or novice route but at their own risk.
When routes cross busy farm roads, marshals are used to assist riders and to ensure their safety. At no stage will any track cross a national provincial or district road.
