BASIC RULES

In order to achieve the greatest effectiveness we believed convenient to adopt some basic rules.

  1. Equipment Needed
    In order to make your trip easier, we’ve created a sample packing list. This isn’t intended to be a complete list,  just a guide to help make sure your trip will be more pleasent. Each tour has it’s own specific packing list.
  2. Environment
    Each participant is responsible for helping protect the local environment. Hold on to any garbage until you meet up with the support vehicle or find a wastebasket / recycling bin. Stay on the main trails as much as possible.
  3. Safety
    Without trying to limit your riding enjoyment, we ask all participants to ride responsibly in order to reduce the likelihood of injuries to themselves and others. Ride conservatively on technical sections and reduce speed when appropriate. Be aware of pedestrians and other vehicles. Helmets are mandatory at all times. Alert the staff if you notice any problems with your bicycle.
  4. Right of the Organization
    The organization reserves the right to change the route for the safety and security of participants. We also reserve the right to terminate the tour of any participant who refuses to ride responsibly or repeatedly puts other at risk. No compensation will be provided for tours cancelled as a result of non-compliance.
  5. Waiver of Liability
    All participants will be asked to sign a waiver before the start of the tour. If you have any questions, please contact us in advance.
