For the safety of all Bike Granby Ranch guests, riding or hiking up Bike Park (Gravity Specific) trails is not permitted. Uphill riding is only permitted on the summer road and on our Cross Country trail network (Outside the Bike Park).
Trail safety is everybody’s responsibility. It is your responsibility to inspect trails and features before use. Trail features vary in size and difficulty and change constantly due to weather, maintenance, usage, modifications, and time of day. Respect the rules and etiquette. Only one person on a feature at a time. Do not use trails or features that are closed. Use your head! Remain in control and within your ability level. Do not use features if you lack sufficient ability and/or experience. You control the level of difficulty you encounter using these features both on the ground and in the air. There is no shame in walking your bike if you feel you are on a trail or feature that is beyond your skill level.
Trail etiquette keeps the bike park safer and more fun for everyone. Remember to always stay in control, and be able to stop or avoid other people or objects. People ahead of you have the right of way. It is your responsibility to avoid them. If you are overtaking a rider, notify them verbally and select an area where you are not braiding/widening the trail. Do not stop where you are not visible from above or obstruct the trail. Whenever starting downhill or merging onto a trail, look uphill and yield to others. Finally, keep the bike park fun! You will likely experience riders of varying abilities. Be patient and give folks the chance to progress to your level in a fun environment.
The Granby Ranch Bike Park is a significantly different experience from cross country riding. The trails require constant physical and mental effort in order for all riders to maintain control.
Clothing: Protective clothing and equipment is highly recommended. The best protection from abrasion requires a properly fitted full-faced helmet, gloves, long pants, long sleeves, leg armor, arm armor and solid flat soled shoes.
Equipment: The Bike Park trails are specifically designed for full suspension mountain bikes. The trails are rocky, bumpy and become much more difficult without high quality suspension. Without full suspension, fatigue becomes a factor much sooner. The steep grades necessitate disc brakes for adequate stopping power. Cantilever brakes will increase the fatigue factor as more effort will be required to maintain control. All Bike Park participants should ride a properly sized bike and should be able to stand over the seat with their feet flat on the ground. A bike that is too large or with a high seat post significantly increases the risk of injury.
