Environmental Impact Policy

In 2 Adventure (Allura Pty Ltd) is committed to maintaining a minimal impact policy that will enable us as individual members of the general public and members of the off-road sports community to continue to enjoy the vast natural environment that is Australia’s backyard.

For many, forests and parks are places to relax and unwind, away from the pressures of urban life.  Adventure racing is our way to escape and challenge ourselves while enjoying the natural beauty of the Australian bush.  It is a privilege to use these areas while pursuing a sport which we love, and to ensure these natural areas continue to be available to us we must take great care in the way we behave and the way we use these areas.

Natural areas protect our water supplies from pollution and form a scenic backdrop to our towns and rural settlements. National parks are our national treasures — the things we want to keep for our children and theirs.

In 2 Adventure understands that nature provides life-sustaining processes we tend to take for granted:

  • recycling carbon dioxide to release oxygen;
  • creating soils through decomposition;
  • filtering pollutants from the air and water; and
  • storing water.

We cannot live without nature’s ecosystem services.

By working closely with forestry authorities and land managers during event planning, implementing our ‘Bush and Mountain Bike Codes’ and ensuring that all participants at our events adopt these principles, we aim to minimise the impact that our events have on the environment.

We encourage staff, participants and spectators at events to be ambassadors for our sport and tell others about good practice to ensure the longevity of off road sports.  When in State Forests and natural environments, do the right thing and help to protect the environment.

 

“All things are bound together. All things connect. What happens to the Earth happens to the children of the Earth. Man has not woven the web of life. He is but one thread. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself”. (Anon.)
