The 11 golden rules

  1. Participation is only open to registered participants over 16 years. You can only take part if you have a participant’s number attached to your steering wheel. The number on your steering wheel must be clearly visible.
  2. The cycling tour is not a race but a scenic ride for mountain bike lovers.
  3. Participants are regular road users and therefore obliged to follow the legal traffic rules. This also applies to cycling in groups. You are allowed to cycle next to one other cyclist, but only if this is not hindering other road users.
  4. Participants respect other road users and the local communities.
  5. Participants respect the countryside and the environment and deposit garbage (including banana peel) in the applicable containers at rest areas, start and finish.
  6. Participants are fully aware of all the risks involved in their participation. They look after their own safety and the safety of other road users.
  7. Participants cycle at their own risk. Wearing a helmet is mandatory. The route will be provided to the participants by the organization as a GPS file.
  8. The use of following cars during the tour is forbidden.
  9. Participants are obliged to follow instructions of the organization without delay.
  10. In case of misconduct or not observing these rules participants can be excluded from the tour they are participating in, as well as any future tours.
  11. As agreed with the judicial authorities in Maastricht, the police will take repressive action should excesses occur during the tour. Upon request the organization will hand over the personal data of the misbehaving participants to the police.
