Important Rules

The Intrepid takes place on public roads that are not closed to traffic.

  • Participants must abide by the traffic regulations of the respective communities. All participants must cycle on the right side of the road for the entire event in single file. Cutting corners is not allowed. Instructions from uniformed persons (police, fire and ambulance services, route personnel and marshals are to be followed at all times).
  • During the event it is absolutely compulsory to wear a helmet at all times.
  • It is strictly forbidden to throw away or drop things, especially packaging material, bottles, or drinking cups. Riders will be removed from the event, if you are found to be littering.
  • Both partners of a team may assist each other within the framework of the traffic regulations. However, mechanical connections between the two bicycles (towing ropes or similar) are not permitted.
  • Slower cyclists have to give way to overtaking cyclists immediately.
  • Participants have to ride carefully, especially in difficult-to-see sections of the course. Be prepared to brake in downhill sections, and expect oncoming traffic.
  • It is not permitted to pass closed train crossings at red traffic lights. There will be no time credit given for participants delayed by closed train crossings.
  • Defective equipment must be repaired at the side of the road.
  • The organizers reserve the right to cancel or call off the event or certain stages at any time. Reasons for this can be, among other things, force majeure (e.g. bad weather) and extraordinary/unforeseeable situations. In these instances, participants do not have a claim to a refund of the entry fee in part. Furthermore, they cannot derive from that the right to further damage claims.
