Bike Advices and Emergency Numbers
Responsible biking during your vacation in Brandnertal, Klostertal, Großes Walsertal and Bludenz
Mountain bike routes lead into terrain where particular demands on the personal responsibility of the mountain biker are placed. So rocks and trees may make the track impassable for a while or the track goes through steep terrain past dangerous spots where there is the risk of falling. Through the management of the forests and Alps oncoming traffic, parked vehicles or road blocks can be expected at any time. When mountain biking it is important that certain rules of behaviour are observed to avoid conflict with other user groups and to ensure one’s own safety.
These includes in particular:
- Responsible cycling with controlled speed able to stop within half your range of vision, particularly on bends, as obstacles can be expected atny time (e.g. rocks, branches, damaged road surfaces, temporarily stored wood, grazing stock, stock gates, barriers, vehicles, forestry machines, road blocks etc.)
- Walkers and pedestrians have priority Considerate overtaking is carried out at walking pace.
- The agricultural and forestry management has priority on the permitted tracks. Stock gates are to be closed again, temporary road blocks are to be observed.
- Do not leave the permitted signposted tracks. In this way wildlife and game habitats will be preserved.
- Good tour planning takes into account the difficulty of the route and one’s own ability. This also includes helmet protective equipment and a mountain bike in technically perfect condition.
