Rules for biking in the forest
The Mountainbikeroute must be driven clockwise for the sake of other guests in the forest and other mountainbikers.
In the forest, biking is only allowed on paths and forest roads – offroad biking is strictly prohibited in order to keep the forest and and its relics intact. Furthermore you should avoid biking on non-marked hiking paths.
Your speed must be adjusted to the conditions with regards to the safety of others and unforeseen challenges in the forest, where the lookout is limited and where the bottom can be loose and slippery. Keeping to the right is also applicable for mountainbiking in the forest. Lower your speed if you want to pass other guests in the forest and be sure that they have noticed you. Remember that it is ok to move around on foot everywhere in the forest, so you can suddenly meet someone where you least expect it.
Walking and biking in the forest is on your own responsibility and at your own risk.
