When riding an MTB
On a mountain bike, the countryside becomes a playground with obstacles, adrenalin-releasing challenges, and a high pulse. There is plenty of opportunities if you like challenging trails and wonderful experi-ences of nature.
Here’s a list of tips to help you take care of nature while also experiencing nature:
- Observe the highway code – this also applies to the coun-tryside.
- Remember to respect other users and keep to paths sui-ted to an ordinary old-fashioned bike. Avoid bridle paths, animal tracks, footpaths, and the forest floor.
- Respect signage and guidelines – also if it means taking another route.
- Respect animals and bird breeding seasons and foraging times. Avoid cycling in woodlands at twilight, when many animals come out to forage.
- Leave nature in peace at night.
- Keep to forest roads and paths in private woodlands.
- Don’t cycle on ancient monuments, burial mounds, dikes, and sand dunes.
- Respect other users of the countryside – reduce speed and use your bell in plenty of time.
- Remember that you are a visitor to the countryside – do not disturb animals and birds.
