Safety guidelines:
Fair-Play- Rules for mountain bikers

Mountain biking is an exciting sport and nature experience! It can quickly happen that you forget everything around you. But be careful, you are not alone on the trails! A sensible and considerate riding style is a guarantee for a safe and accident-free mountain biking experience. A few simple rules help to avoid conflicts in the first place


 


Cycling and mountain biking in the National Park area is only allowed in the period from 15 April to 31 October 2 hours after sunrise to 1 hour before sunset!


Exception is the Langfirst mountain bike trail, here the biking season only starts on June 1st.


Riding is only allowed on the approved and marked paths! Driving bans and closures also apply to mountain bikers.Attention to other nature users! Approach hikers or riders slowly and use your bell if necessary.


Avoid unnecessary noise and show consideration for the animals. This also includes riding only in daylight.


Mountain bikers are guests in the forest - behave accordingly respectfully towards landowners, foresters and hunters. The approach to grazing animals should be at walking pace to avoid panic reactions of the animals. Important - After passing through, all pasture gates must be closed!


Leave nature as you would like to find it yourself - without litter, this belongs in the trash can.On all mountain bike routes the road traffic regulations (StVO) apply. Always ride responsibly and with foresight. The bike must be technically perfect and equipped accordingly (brakes, lights, bell).



Equipment:
A first aid kit is included in the rucksack as well as a mobile phone (Euro-emergency call 112), a repair kit, warming clothes, rain protection, light and sufficient food and drink.

Gloves and glasses protect hands and eyes.


Maps or GPS are valuable orientation aids.


Uphill and downhill always wear a helmet!
