Safety,
Rules & Legal

First Aid
It is very highly recommended that participants have ambulance cover. Basic first aid is available on site however for major injuries an ambulance would be called.

Mobile phones do not work in the area, great for forgetting about the world but not so good in an emergency. However we would recommend if someone needed to contact you that you give them Scott and Regina's details before leaving and in any emergency whilst visiting Castletop you would need to go to either of the houses on the property to use the phone.

Motorcycles are dangerous and can inflict serious injury or worse kill both the rider or other people.

Riders should only use grids and bikeramps if available and where provided to avoid the use of gates.
Where a gate is opened it must be shut by the same person and in the same state it was found.

Persons responsible for incorrectly closing gates will be responsible for the cost of
