Mountain biking is a relatively young sport that still has to find its place among the alpine community. Please help us achieve this by showing understanding and respect for every nature lover and athlete, and be a shining example for our beloved sport. The other bikers, walkers, nature lovers, hunters, farmers and residents will be grateful for it.
Whether you're touring on the cycle way out for a leisurely ride on a bike path, racing along the roads on a road bike on the street or mountain biking on a single trail track or agricultural landroads, thoughtful bikers and cyclists behave respectfully to other users. Togetherness on paths and streets is a matter of course for many mountain bikers and cyclists around the world and, in Innsbruck, we show respect to others around us. Only with respect can we enjoy a pleasant and courteous cycling experience.
Of course, consideration and respect must also be shown to walkers: please stay on the designated trails, and no refrain from wild backcountry or off-trail ridingbiking in forests or animal retreat areas. All closed roads (e.g., forestry work) should be respected, and downhill racing as a speed-oriented, competitive sport should only be attempted on the designated trails.
