The listed rides in the EuroBug site are conducted by EuroBUG with trained ride leaders. Many of the rides involve riding in remote areas, on rough roads and tracks, with poor or no mobile phone coverage.  The routes in the Forest are sometimes not obvious, as additional tracks may have been created by forest operations which are not shown on maps.  It is important that the remote area rides in particular, are only ridden by experienced riders who:

  • Carry detailed map(s)

  • Have adequate provision for breakdown repairs.

  • Carry food and water

  • Carry adequate clothing for adverse weather

  • Give notice to an appropriate person of their intended route and estimated time of completion
