trail riding code of conduct
rotor adventures only use roads that the public are entitled to ride motorcycles on
Trail riding is lawful on green roads which are commonly known as unclassified county roads, or which are classified as Byway Open to All Traffic. Motorcycles and riders must be road-legal. Green roads are subject to the same laws as public roads and highways.
keep to the defined green road
Avoid straying from the road, especially onto moorland or farmland – doing so may be a criminal offence and cause unwanted damage
give plenty of space to walkers, horses and cyclists
As a courtesy, on narrow roads or green roads, stop and switch off engines when sharing the road with ridden or managed horses, be courteous to other road users – ramblers, cyclists, livestock, wildlife, farm machinery & motor vehicles.
travel at a speed which is safe and sustainable for the road surface
Ride at an unobtrusive speed, taking regard of conditions and visibility. Be prepared to stop at all times
ride quietly and unobtrusively
Machines must be effectively silenced. Use the throttle with discretion, as noise does offend. Green roads are subject to the same laws as public roads and highways
honour the countryside code
Respect the countryside and those who live, work and play in it. Green roads can be valuable habitats for wildlife, take especial care in spring and early summer. Fasten gates to safeguard stock, except those tied open for land management purposes.
endeavour to be a good ambassador for motorcycling
Be courteous to other road users and respect their equal entitlement to use the road. Bear in mind the difficulties of others and try not to add to them. Acknowledge others with a friendly wave or other suitable gesture. Responsible trailriding is a form of quiet enjoyment of the countryside. Maintain the standard of a responsible trailrider, so as not to disturb the tranquillity of National Parks and peaceful areas of the countryside.
