There are some mandatory safety requirements you must follow to ride at Linga Longa Bike Park
Full face helmets are mandatory for any rider five years or older. This includes riding the skills park, jump lines and green trails.
Riders under the age of five are allowed to wear open face helmets but must be supervised at all times. We still recommend a full face even for the groms.
Your bike must be fit for use at the park. That means no Kmart bikes or city cruisers. Your bike must be classified for mountain biking and have bar ends.
It is recommended that you have disc brakes and in good working order. Some sections of trails are steep and you want to be in control of your bike.
We recommend wearing at the very least gloves, knee pads and elbow pads. This will protect you from losing skin if you happen to have a lay down in the pea gravel.
If you’re planning to ride the harder tracks with higher consequence features we recommend a back/chest plate and neck brace.
It is advised against wearing singlets and short shorts. A t-shirt or jersey and long shorts or pants would be recommended to ensure you are well protected. Enclosed shoes are required and it is recommended to wear shoes with grippy soles or mountain bike specific shoes.
For young children who are advancing with their skills we highly recommend protective gear and they must be wearing suitable riding clothes.
The two best options for protecting your eyes against any branches, stones or excessive dust are riding glasses or goggles.
We have a variety of trail conditions so it’s worth having lenses that work in low light as well as full sun.
