3.You should ensure that both yourself, your bike and your gear are in a good state to complete the 2-day trip. A standard road bike is NOT suitable for this event (check this link for tips for your bike and this link for tips for your gear).
4. If, during the event, you decide to change your route and distance, then all consequences of this action are yours.
5.The organizers and staff can take any action necessary to assure the safety of the participant(s).
6.The Dirty Boar Gravel Bikepacker is NOT a race. This means that there will be other traffic (also in the forest) and that all the traffic rules apply.
7.We will ride in a remote and protected area. Please respect nature and don't leave any rubbish (packaging, punctured inner tubes....) behind.
8.Participants are required to wear a cycling helmet that is in a good condition. Any rider not conforming with this term can be removed from the event (before or during).
10.Please also check the recommended equipment on our website (at the Bikepacker page). Depending on the expected weather the organization might make some extra recommendations (clothing, tyre choice...).
