Please pay attention to that
For a safe biking experience there are ten special mountain bike rules while our bike trail markers guarantee the perfect view - for your own safety and the sake of our environment.
1. Mountainbike Rule I
I control my speed and I anticipate trail users and obstacles (e.g. stones, branches, cattle, gates, tractors and other vehicles/machines) around corners and blind spots!
Mountainbike Rule II
I respect all trails, roads and paths and do not leave marked MBT trails. I bike in an environmentally sound andresponsible way.
Mountainbike Rule III
I show consideration for hikers and walkers and slow down to a walking pace for overtaking!
Mountainbike Rule IV
I protect my head with a helmet and check my equipmentbefore starting a tour!
Mountainbike Rule V
I take the route’s level of difficulty into consideration and judge my experience and ability as a biker accurately!
Mountainbike Rule VI
I respect barriers for wood-cutting works and accept that forestry trails are primarily for the use of the owners of the forest!
Mountainbike Rule VII
II do not leave rubbish!
Mountainbike Rule VIII
I close pasture gates!
Mountainbike Rule IX
I watch out for obstacles especially on narrow single trails as they are not checked regularly. I control my speed and use the trails at my own risk.
