Let’s keep the mountains clean and safe for everyone!
• Always wear a helmet (and gloves whenever possible) on touring and mountain bikes
• For downhill mountain biking, a full face helmet, gloves, knee pads, elbow pads and back protector are highly recommended.
• Make sure you use the right type/size of bike that has been regularly serviced
• Never go on a ride alone
• When using a trail for the first time, scout it out, adapt your speed and watch out for unexpected difficulties
• Adapt your speed according to the weather conditions, your ability and each obstacle or module
• Do not attempt reckless jumps
Courtesy to others:
• Adapt your speed to others on the trail and the visibility ahead
• To pass or overtake, make sure others can see or hear you, slow down, keep a safe distance, slow to walking pace or stop: walkers always have priority
• Do not stop on the trail, park off the track or use the special stopping zones
• Keep well off the track to take photos and / or videos and always be on the lookout for approaching riders
Respect the signs and markers:
• Mountain biking is not authorised on all trails, make sure you are well informed
• Be vigilant and respect all signs and markers
Respect the environment, livestock and farmers:
• Keep the mountains beautiful, don't leave any litter behind
• Stick to the designated paths and areas: do not create your own track, shortcut or jumps
• Limit your skidding, rail your turns and do not cut corners.
