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
I will maintain control of my speed at all times and
will approach turns in anticipation of someone around
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
I will not travel solo when bikepacking in remote areas.
I will leave word of my destination and when I plan
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.
