Cycle Safety

For your safety and the safety of other visitors please be aware of the following points:

  • Only cycle within your abilities.
  • Expect the unexpected – watch out for other visitors.
  • Always follow warning signs and any advice you are given.
  • If a vehicle is loading timber, stop and wait for the driver to let you pass safely.
  • It's advisable to have a bell on your bike to let others know you're coming.
