While practicing mountain biking, you agree to expose yourself to risks and situations that could cause damage to your equipment, cause injury, and even death. If you do not adhere to the regulations or are not comfortable with the level of risk of the activities, you are free to leave the territory at your convenience.

 

What to know to be well prepared for your activity?

  • We have a few specific points of communications and access in case of emergency;
  • We recommend that you pay your access fees before arriving on-site;
  • Wearing a helmet is mandatory for mountain biking;
  • There are no patrols on the trails; you and your peers are responsible for your safety at all times;
  • There are several risks inherent in mountain biking such as injuries, falls, heatstroke, allergies caused by plants, insects or animals, insect bites (ticks), etc.;

Mountain biking activities take place in a rugged natural environment far from medical services, which could lead to long delays in an emergency requiring evacuation, and therefore, a possible worsening of your condition or injury.

Circuits Frontières also assumes that you are committed to respecting the organization’s rules and to playing an active role in managing these risks by adopting a preventive attitude towards yourself and others around you. You understand that you are free to leave this activity at any time, for one reason or another.
