DINNER PLAIN BIKE PARK COVID-19 POLICY

In the current State of Emergency, a great deal of consideration has been given to public facilities at Dinner Plain, particularly the DP Bike Park and its mountain bike trails.

Mountain Biking is an activity that offers a level of recreation that can be undertaken in isolation, it can also be done with minimal risk to increasing the spread of infection of COVID-19. It is our intention to maintain this recreation option for those within the village and keep the trails open to ride. To do so requires some ground rules that must be adhered to by all users of the park.

 Dinner Plain Bike Park, its trails and pump track remain open for public use with the below requirements around social distancing and responsible use. These requirements have been formulated in accordance with both Stage 3 restrictions and MTBA guidelines. They may be subject to change at any time and with little notice.

  • Individual riders only, no group rides
    This might seem harsh, but it is important. Single riders only are allowed on both the MTB trails and Pump Track (except in the case you are riding with people from your own household). Droplets can hang in the air longer than you expect and following somebody down singletrack puts you in the firing line if someone ahead coughs or sneezes. Remember, you and your mates can be infected without showing any symptoms. MTBA advises single riders only and we have made it policy.
  • No Club Rides, Coaching Clinics or congregating at trail-heads
    The same as above, all use of the bike park and its trails are for individual use. This is not the time for group activities or clinics. Ride the trails alone or not at all.
  • Pump Track use for individual riders only
    One rider on the track at any time and no groups of 2 or more people congregating alongside, unless from the same household. Be mindful of other people wanting to use the track and time your run appropriately.

  • Public facilities are off-limits
    We’re closing off public facilities like pumps, repair stations and bottle points. We have no resources to sanitise these and ensure their cleanliness so these will be temporarily removed or blocked from the public.
  • Be sensible
    Treat all public surfaces as if they could hold infection. Don’t ever share water bottles. Wash your hands, keep your distance and when you’ve finished your ride, go home. The better we all respect the situation and lead by example, the sooner we can get beyond this crisis together.
