Mountain bikers …
You give way to other trail users
Announce yourself early – there is always time to say hello
Reduce your speed when overtaking and crossing or stop
Avoid busy sections of the road
Ride only on paths, trails, routes and designated tracks
Riding off existing trails is taboo for you
Respect local trail closures and protected areas
If you encounter an animal, stop and wait until it has retreated.
Close pasture fences after you have passed them.
Avoid herds and guard dogs on foot, calmly and with enough distance.
Don’t brake with locked wheels – it hurts the trail and your tires
Avoid dirt tracks after rain
Do not leave trash behind
You can always stop on sight
Adapt your speed to the situation
Plan your tour, estimate your capacity and the weather correctly
Wearing a helmet is a matter of course
Repair and first aid kit are always with you
Rain and heat protection are part of every touring equipment
Your bike is roadworthy and for the twilight you have light with you.
