The coexistance of riding and other activities such as farming, mycology or horse riding among others requires both riders and the rest of the users to behave respecfully. Respectful behaviour is an essential feature for both “Puro Pirineo” to be sustainable and riders to be accepted and respected in the environment.
To make cycling compatible with such activities it is necessary to be an example of both nature and cycling enthusiasts. To make this philosophy come true “Puro Pirineo” offers you some tips to make respectful coexistence to become a reality.
The pedestrian path regulation concludes that the right of way and priority of the different users is: 1st hikers, 2nd jockeys, 3rd riders.
It is necessary to remember that herds of animals have priority over the rest of the path users. Iit is mandatory to stop and yield the right of way to them in order to facilitate their moves.
On downhill paths you will also not have the right of way. You must stop and yield. If other user decides to give you priority you must express your thanks and continue.
The areas surrounding the different tracks are owned by local farmers. You must follow them avoiding to invade private land.
If you find any fence remember to close it after crossing. If you consider that the fence might become a dangerous element for the rest of riders let us know by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or talking to the person in charge of the Information Point.
Puro Pirineo” routes are located in a fragile natural environment where many protected species can be found. Please, try not to disturb when riding and help us to protect them by not leaving any waste in the area.
To avoid soil erosion remember to ride smoothly trying not to drift if possible.
