Advice

Please wear appropriate clothes and footwear, and bring warm clothing. Before setting off on a trail, check that it is suitable for your activity and level of ability. Helmets must be worn when mountain-biking. Protective equipment is recommended. Verify that your gear is in good condition. Preferably bike with others, and inform those close to you of your route. Respect other trail users, and stay in control of your speed and trajectory. Keep an eye on the forecast: violent storms or sudden floods can be dangerous. For your own safety, do not venture into hunting areas – hunts in progress are indicated by signs (“Chasse en cours” or “Battue en cours”). Respect property, livestock and other users of the area. Biking off-road is prohibited.
