TLC MTB Code of Conduct
If you get it, you will understand. If you don’t, maybe do another ride? Just saying….

  • Respect the trail
    • Respect the environment
    • Respect wildlife
    • No littering
  • Respect your fellow rider
  • Help others – you were a beginner once
  • Respect the landowner – they make trails available for a race – not for your personal enjoyment when there isn’t a race – when a gate is closed, it’s closed – so don’t swear at landowners when confronted about trespassing
  • If there’s a hill…. get over it
  • Respect the marshals and officials
  • No princesses or drama queens allowed – this one is mainly for the guys
  • Adhere to the basics
    • Ride with a helmet fastened always
    • Stick to the rules of the road – that means, stay on the left-hand side of the road. There’s nothing worse than trying to squeeze between two riders on each side of the road
  • Train – well sort of
  • Pay it forward – help others in need - you may need help one day
  • Respect the basics
    • Bring a cell phone
    • Bring your GPS
    • Bring spares
    • Carry enough liquid – for the ride. We will look after the rest
  • If you are doing a race, your goodie bag isn’t always going to be like “The Platinum Collection”. Get over it. But we do try
  • Don’t trash the organisers on Social Media – have the balls to chat to them first
  • If racing, follow the arrows – not the person in front of you
  • If you are tired and grumpy, take a few minutes to get your breath back. Don’t snap at other riders and certainly not at the organisers or marshals
  • Enjoy it – we get it that fitness and health are a big part of what you do, but enjoy it as well.


Chill, Chat, Have a Cold One, Share Stories,
Show off your toys
- enjoy it!
