    Bike Park Safety/Rules sign

    For those of you out there that are or have worked on bringing a bike park to your area what did you do for a rules/safety sign? Is there anywhere to order something premade or did you have something made up by a sign place?

    Every venue is different. Every community, city, or private owner will require different text included on the signs. Find out what is required. Some cities require signs either made from a specific company, or signs that meet certain guidelines. Meaning, some text need to be 2-1/2" in a certain font, etc. I'm not kidding. Don't waste any money until the manager and or city gives you in writing specific guidelines for signs. The above may not apply in some areas of the world. Good luck.
    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    We kept it simple:

    5 Freeriding Commandments:

    1. Thou shalt not ride trails when muddy.
    2. Thou shalt not ride trails without a helmet.
    3. Thou shalt not walk up jump trails - use the return lines.
    4. Thou shalt ride within your ability
    5. Thou shalt not ride trails without digging - dirt jumps don't grow on trees. To join the volunteer team email bafvolunteers@gmail.com
