Mountain biking in a bike park can be very demanding on your equipment and your body. Therefore, only Full Suspension Mountain Bikes are permitted to be used on the trails at Mo’Bike. Other bikes (hybrid, gravel, cyclocross, BMX, etc.) are not permitted.

We recommend the use of appropriately sized, high quality, modern, long-travel, full suspension bikes with good quality hydraulic disk brakes.

Before riding always inspect your equipment or have it checked by a qualified bike mechanic and check for any damage after each run and especially after a crash however minor. Do not ride on damaged equipment.

Pre-arrival checklist

  • Helmets are mandatory at all times when riding a bike at Mo’Bike. Your helmet have to meet standard EN1078 as a minimum, is less than three years old, is in good shape and properly adjusted. We highly recommend the use of full-face protection helmets with higher levels of protection such as ASTFM F1952-DH. Gloves, eye protection and body armour are also highly recommended. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SUITABLE HELMET, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO RIDE IN THE PARK OR USE THE UPLIFT SERVICE,
  • Inspect bike frame and forks for cracks, damaged or dented areas,
  • Ensure you have sufficient brake pads to stop your bike while descending; two working disc brakes are mandatory,
  • Front and rear axles (quick release or bolt through type) should be tight.
  • Headset and stem must be secure with no looseness or play.
  • Tyres should be at least 1.5” wide with off-road tread. Check that your tyres are in good condition, with plenty of tread and no cuts or abrasions in the sidewall and that rims show no cracks or signs of weakness, all spokes should be tight and intact.
  • Handlebar and handlebar grips must be tight and unable to spin. Handlebars must have bar end plugs (or grips that fully enclose the end of the bars) installed. Due to the nature of our trails drop bars are not permitted.
  • Seat and seatpost need to be fastened securely and dropper seatposts checked that they are functioning correctly.
  • Check pedals are secure and do not have excessive play. Pedals with Toe Strap fastenings are not permitted to be used.
  • Suspension should be in good working order with no leaks or loose parts.
