Conditions of participation in guiding events

Participants in guiding events know that mountain biking is a dangerous sport that carries a high risk of injury. Participation in a guiding event is at your own risk and the instructions of the guide are to be followed in your own interest. It is only possible to point out to the guide foreseeable dangers, but not possible to warn of every unforeseeable danger and danger point. A always foresighted, controlled and considerate driving style, which is within the scope of one's own assessment of abilities and skills, is therefore a prerequisite for the avoidance of crashes and for a timely reaction to possible dangers on the part of the participants. Participants are encouraged to inform the guide of any misjudgments about the choice of route and skills so that the guide can react accordingly.

Only those who are fully fit to drive can take part in a guiding event. Any impairment of the ability to drive, in particular through alcohol, drugs or medication, leads to the exclusion from the guiding event. Intoxicants such as In addition, alcohol and drugs are not permitted during the guiding event.

During a guiding event, the participants are obliged to wear a bicycle helmet and, depending on the weather, to wear appropriate clothing and, if necessary, appropriate protective equipment. Each participant is responsible for their own personal equipment. Participants in guiding events are responsible for providing sufficient food and drinks.

Despite the professional and safe execution of the guiding events, accidents cannot be ruled out. By booking a guiding event, participants assure that they are in possession of a valid accident and liability insurance policy at the time of the event and that they will only start the tour if they feel well prepared for the requirements specified in the tour briefing, in particular if they are in an adequate state of training and health have. Participants in guiding events are encouraged to avoid overloading and to cancel the guiding event in good time if health problems arise.

In the presence of diabetes, respiratory or cardiovascular diseases, pregnancy as well as problems in the joint, muscular and musculoskeletal system as a whole, pathological obesity or other health problems and previous illnesses, participation in guiding events is only permitted after consultation with and possible through a certificate from the attending physician.

A technically fit mountain bike and sufficient breakdown equipment are required for participation in a guiding event. Each participant is responsible for their own personal equipment. The guide is not obliged to provide technical support to participants in the event of a breakdown. If a return transport of the participant is necessary or if the guiding event cannot be ended due to unforeseeable mishaps, crashes or exhaustion, any necessary return transport must be carried out at the participant's own risk and expense. Any damage or loss of your own or rented mountain bikes and equipment during the guiding event must be reported to the guide immediately.
