Respect nature and
stay on trails

Short cutting and freeriding

can cause erosion

Design &

Developing trails

Iceland Bike Farm, the first and only natural bike park in Iceland. With a 25 thousand acres land of mountain bike trail network, we offer a wide variety of skill level and style.

We like to focus on keeping our trails sustainable when we design our single track. When we build new trails, we look to the previous farmers, on finding the old sheep tracks through the mountains. That way we use what is already there, rather than distort the land all over again.

Since sheep are not mountain bike minded, we take what they have shaped & made it even better.

By cleaning rocks away, shaping jumps & adding a few twists, we can proudly invite our guests on the trails for fun days in the mountains.

There's more to building a trail than moving rocks and dirt. Trails are usually part of larger systems that are the result of careful planning and collaboration process. These trail systems must serve the needs of multiple user groups and take environmental and geographical factors into account.

Iceland has many hidden and unspoiled places that should remain intact for future generations. The short growing season gives vegetation a very limited time to grow and recover from damage.

These are guidelines that the Association of Iceland Mountain Bikers agrees on and asks all riders to follow:

  •  Treat nature with respect: Ride only on trails that can support mountain bike riding.  Ride on the trail only.

  •  Be respectful and considerate to other trail users.

  •  Ride responsibly, don’t cut switchbacks & ride within your limits.

  •  Be a model for other mountain bike riders. Pass the knowledge of responsible riding onto your fellow riders.

 

Every rider has the power to shape the future of the sport.  The way we ride today shapes mtb access in the future. Keep trails open by riding responsibly.
