To make your ride a pleasure, we also offer a few tips:
• Choose a path that suits your physical abilities. Check the condition of the bicycle, especially the tires, brakes and gearboxes.
• If the bicycle is not working properly, DO NOT ride it, but first repair it yourself or have it serviced.
• Bring enough fluids (preferably plain water) and some food (energy bars).
• Bring spare clothes so that you can change in case of rain or sweating.
• Bring spare and waterproof clothing.
• Bring a camera so you can capture memories of beautiful landscapes, plants, animals and mushrooms.
• Stick to existing roads and marked bike paths. Some parts of the trail are very steep and demanding, so use them only if you are completely confident in your riding skills and endurance bike.
• Enjoy nature, but please respect the way of life, work and customs of the local population.
• Many animals, plants and fungi live in the Park area that are endangered and protected, so do not destroy or disturb them.

Please note! Bicycles are “hybrids”, so without independent propulsion. The driver has to turn the pedals, but the battery makes it much easier to move. The battery has several degrees of strength, so that the user uses it, but also ten other classic speeds, to determine how much he wants to use the power of his own muscles, and how much the power of the battery.
