Safety while water biking.

We are dedicated to showing you a great time biking on the river, but safety is always our priority. Before every session we will provide a full safety briefing. We will cover everything that you need to know in this briefing, however, here are a few things you can be aware of before getting started:

Please Do Not Cross The River At Any Point Whilst Biking At Riverlife

The Brisbane River is a fully operational transport hub, unlike other areas you may have kayaked before. That means there are plenty of larger and faster crafts than Water Bikes on the water. Please stick to the passive craft lane, which your guide will point out to you. 

If You Fall Off, Don’t Panic! 

Every Riverlife biking participant is given a Personal Flotation Device (PFD). The first thing to remember, if you do fall in, is do not panic. There are simple and safe techniques for getting back in which are demonstrated in your safety briefing. If you can’t swim that’s okay! Just please ensure you have booked a guided experience. That way, our fully-qualified instructors can help you along the way.

Zero Tolerance Policy

Riverlife operates with a Zero Tolerance Drugs & Alcohol policy for all activities. Because of this, if found to be in breach of this policy, you can not participate in the adventure. Should you arrive intoxicated, there are no options for rescheduling or refunds. However, if you are looking to have a drink afterwards, we have alcoholic beverages available.
