Safety information

  1.  Give your bike a regular checkup, especially if you've had it for years.

  2. Be seen: you must wear a high vis jacket (or sash) in tunnels and on country roads after sunset.

  3. Always wear your helmet.

  4. Make sure your front and rear lights are working.

  5. Put out your arm to give advance warning of your intention to change position and before you do anything, check there are no vehicles coming up behind you.

  6. Don't use headphones or your mobile phone handsfree kit: you need all your concentration on the road!

  7. Obey the road signs: stop at traffic lights and don't ride on the wrong side of the road.

  8. If you are cycling in a group, always go in single file.

  9. You've got a bell: use it to let pedestrians know you're there. Don't ride on footpaths. If you have to then get off and push your bike.

  10. If there are cycle paths use them. It's your safety that's at stake and the rules of the road say you must.

Equipment

Riding your bike requires specific clothing and equipment, even for relatively short and easy trips. It is always better to be prepared… e.g. for bad weather or a drop your energy levels. The unexpected things also make up a part of the fun!

Do not compare a road bike with a mountain bike. They are very different, especially in technical terms, and facing a hill with a road bike could be much more difficult than facing the same hill with a MTB. Therefore, remember to throughly evaluate the type of route you plan to do and the locations you plan to cross. Do not forget to consider the current season. Has it been raining? Attention: the paint of the crosswalk could be very slick.

What do I need to bring on my bike tour?

  • Bike helmet
  • Bike gloves
  • Bike glasses
  • Waterproof/Windproof jacket
  • Headlights and rearlights
  • Reflecting suspenders
  • Plenty of snacks (for example, dried fruit or energy bars)
  • Water Bottle
  • Bike repair kit (tire levers, mini bike pump, bike tube)

It is always advised to let someone know where you plan to go and how long you expect to be.

Emergency telephone number 112.

Eine sehr schöne Tour, wer Berge mag ;-) und man kann diese wunderbar über Castellano erweitern, dann kommt man auf ca 64 km und 1.600 Höhenmeter.
