Yes, Bikes are allowed, but peg covers are recommened. Bikes are not allowed in the pool.
The metal coping is grippy, should it be waxed ?
NO! We have been informed by the buliders that waxing the metal coping will actually make it more grippy. The wax works it's way into the small metal pits in the coping, causing the coping to corrode, making it slower. Extesive wax use will just make the coping worse.
