Master the Adventure: 10 Rules for an Unforgettable Riding Experience!

Respect the environment, respect the others

Leave no trace of your passage. Leave nature unchanged.

Ride equally, be fair

Ride under your own power. Drafting is not allowed unless you’re riding in pair or during the neutralised start. You can leave the track if you need, but you have to return to that exact point where you left to continue.

Be safe, ride responsibly

Helmet and bike lights are mandatory. Wearing reflective vest makes you more visible. Don’t take useless risks.

Follow the route

You must follow the track provided. If at some point the way is blocked by something unexpected like roadworks, landslide or anything else, you can leave the track but you’ll have to rejoin it as soon as possible. *Intentional shortcuts will cost a time penalty.

Be self-supported

Plan your ride carefully. Take your time to study the map and all the details. No third party support, no private resupply. You must use commercial services to satisfy your needs. Booking accommodation or any logistic support before the event is not allowed.

Respect the laws of every area you are crossing

Don’t take any useless risks. Respect other vehicles, traffic lights and local rules.

Be visible for the dotwatchers

Check your tracker status from time to time. If your tracking is malfunctioning or out of battery you must give proof of your ride in order to be a “finisher”. Turning off the tracker or long periods of inactivity without reporting to the organisation will imply exclusion from the event. A refundable deposit will be required for each tracker against loss or damage. The details will be defined in the Handbook.

Insurance is mandatory

You must have a valid liability, death, accident and health insurance valid during the event that covers emergency extraction and repatriation insurance. The organization won’t provide any kind of insurance for the event and will not held liable for any damage whatsoever that may occur directly and/or indirectly to you or other parties.

Take your time, be on time

Don’t miss the accreditation and the start. If you finish the route after the time limit you can’t expect any official support. It’s your duty to return the tracker by mail.

It’s “not hunger games” be kind to each other

Always ask for help if you’re in danger for any serious reason, always try to help if someone else is in danger for any serious reason.
