Rules of conduct



The Mount Cargiago is normally frequented by hickers. For this reason you must always be careful and always give way to walker. The following is the behavior rules adopted in the U.S.A. and established by the National Off Road Bicycle Association, commonly called NORBA Code:

• I will yield the right of way to other non-motorized recreationists. I realize that people judge all cyclists by my actions.

• I will slow down and use caution when approaching or overtaking another and will make my presence well known in advance.

• I will maintain control of my speed at all times and will approach turns in anticipation of someone around the bend.

• I will stay on designated trails to avoid trampling native vegetation and minimize erosion to trails by not using muddy trails or short-cutting switchbacks.

• I will not disturb wildlife or livestock.

• I will not litter. I will pack out what I pack in, and pack out more than my share whenever possible.

• I will respect public and private property, including trail use signs, no trespassing signs, and I will leave gates as I have found them.

• I will always be self-sufficient and my destination and travel speed will be determined by my ability, my equipment, the terrain, the present and potential weather conditions.

• I will not travel solo when bikepacking in remote areas. I will leave word of my destination and when I plan to return.

• I will observe the practice of minimal impact bicycling by “taking only pictures and memories and leaving only waffle prints.”

• I will always wear a helmet whenever I ride.
