Safety guidelines get the Mountain Bike sector rolling
April 23, 2018
The NZ Professional Mountain Bike Association are driving the development of an Adventure Safety Guideline (ASG) for mountain biking with the help of Skills Active.
In 2017, a group of mountain bike operators (guides, instructors and bike park people) got together to form the NZ Professional Mountain Bike Association.
One of the group's first jobs is to drive the development of an Adventure Safety Guideline (ASG) for mountain biking. NZPMBA is working with Skills Active Aotearoa to facilitate this process.
This document provides some background information and explains the approach we are taking with this development.
ASGs for other adventure activity sectors
This is a pilot project and after it's completed, we will review the effectiveness of the approach and invite feedback from industry on the new structure.
If there is wide industry acceptance of this approach, then Skills Active may look at using it to inform future ASG development and the review/maintenance of existing ASGs.
NZPMBA and Skills Active would love feedback on the draft ASG from all mountain bike operators!
If you are keen to help shape the guidelines, then please contact Sue Gemmell at Skills Active: email@example.com. Please indicate clearly how you wish to contribute feedback.
Find out more about NZPMBA
NZPMBA was created in part to give the sector a single contact point by which various organisation (like DOC, Skills Active and Worksafe) can communicate with mountain bikers.
NZPMBA wants to make sure we capture as many professional mountain bike businesses and organisations as possible.
If you would like to get involved, please contact Greg McIntyre: firstname.lastname@example.org.
