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 known well 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 tramping native vegetation and minimize potential 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 if possible.
I will respect public and private property, including trail use and no trespassing signs; I will leave gates as I found them.
I will always be self-sufficient and my destination and travel speed will be determined by my ability, my equipment, the terrain and present and potential weather conditions.
I will not travel solo when bike-packing in remote areas. I will leave word of my destination and when I plan to return.
I will practice minimum impact bicycling by “taking only pictures and memories and leaving only waffle prints.” I will always wear a helmet when I ride.
