Please Read: Mountain biking is a risk sport. By taking part in mountain biking you acknowledge and accept the risk of injury. Minor injuries such as cuts, bruises, grazes, sprains and bumps are not uncommon. More serious injuries can occur despite the best skill level and attention to safe riding style. Bike Trossachs does not accept liability for any injury you may incur; injury you may cause to others or damage or loss to your equipment or equipment hired by you. If you use any trails shown on the Bike Trossachs websites or on leaflets or other materials, you use these at your own risk. Trail conditions can change making descriptions inaccurate and it is your responsibility to assess any route prior to riding it and make judgements based on your skill level and conditions.
The aims of Bike Trossachs are to promote mountain biking in particular and biking in general in the Trossachs part of the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park in Scotland.
Achieving these aims will require activities to:
· Increase participation levels, including performance and competition opportunities among young people · Provide opportunities to become involved and learn new skills · Work to provide facilities and infrastructure · Provide information on the opportunities that exist to mountain bike in the Trossachs · Eliminate factors that exclude people from the sport · Spread the word that mountain biking is a fun way to live a healthy, active and fulfilled life.
