4. Complaints Policy & Procedure
NOTE: Participation Statement and Code of practice must be read and understood by all riders. By purchasing any type of ticket for Gattinara 23 Wine & Trails event, you are agreeing to adhere to the Code of Practice and Participation Statement.

1. Code of Practice
Applies to all persons involved including event committee, helpers, officials and any other persons associated or connected with Gattinara 2023 Wine & Trails events.

ONEWHEELING (including racing) 

Onewheeling is a hazardous sport. Tracks at Gattinara hills and river side could be steep and difficult in places. The downhill mountain bike tracks have been designed for bikes, and the road for access to the site; as such, they should only be attempted by experienced users. You may fall or have to walk sections. Float Italia accept no liability for any loss or injury arising from your use of their tracks and / or participation in Gattinara 2023 Wine & Trails events.

Minimum Age
Minimum age for riding the tracks is 10 years - children aged between 10 - 15 years must be supervised by an adult. Those aged 15 and under must be accompanied by and have a parent/guardian to sign for them.

Take Care
All users must read and understand this and a Participation Statement before using the facilities and participating in any events.

Is your Onewheel suitable?
You are entirely responsible for the state of repair of your own Onewheel and for ensuring it is in sufficiently good condition for use on the tracks. There may be puddles and / or water lying on the tracks, and a waterproofed Onewheel is recommended.

Where can you ride?
On the hills you may only ride on the designated downhill and cross country tracks, and the access road. For the future it is vitally important to prevent erosion so please do not cut corners. Any customer cutting corners or riding in non designated areas may be asked to leave the mountain. It is not recommended to ride a onewheel on the designated mountain bike tracks.

Remember other users
There may be other cyclists, walkers, vehicles and Onwheelers on the tracks and access road. Treat others with consideration. Slow down if needed. If you stop on the track please step aside to let others pass. Outside of a competition run, let faster riders pass you. No i-pods (or similar) whilst riding.
Bikes, motorbikes, walkers and horses have the right of way over onewheel

Obey the signs and instructions from staff
They are there for your safety and the safety of others. Ride with care when passing people working on the tracks.

We suggest that you do not ride alone; bring a friend, even if just to spectate. In the event of a serious accident, please report it to staff and others. We need to know the nature of the accident, where it has occurred and an accident form must be completed.

Helmets & Insurance
You must wear a helmet when riding any of the tracks but full face helmets and body armour are mandatory for the Black Track and are advised for the other down hill track. Consider your insurance situation; are you insured for personal injury and 3rd party liability?

Failure to comply
You will be banned from riding for a specific period depending on the infringement. There will be no refund of money paid for the rider in this case.

Take your litter Home
Help keep Gattinara and the surrounding area looking sweet. Please take your litter home.

Respect gets respect
Onewheeling is a new sport; please give us the reputation we deserve as a legitimate sport - respect others and we will help ensure we are welcome back next year.
