First and foremost, the tour should be fun. Everyone rides his own pace for as long as he / she can. Riding, eating, bivouacs in groups are tolerated. Here the survival kit can be used (see below). To ensure the same conditions for all, the following rules apply:

Stay on track

  • keep as close to the predefined GPS track as possible, but stay on the roads
  • respect the law and private property
  • if you leave the track for shopping, lodging, bike repair or sightseeing you must return to the point where you left it
  • the same applies if you get lost
  • bypass obstacles as close as possible

Conquer under own power

  • no motors, no sailing, no drafting, no hitchhiking


  • participants are self dependent
  • everyone carries all necessary equipment and food or resupplies food / equipment at commercial shops along the way
  • supply only at services that are available to all riders
  • no pre-arranged (booked before the start) services

Most of these rules are based on the Grenzsteintrophy Codex. And that last statement is valid here as well: who looks for loopholes, should rather ride somewhere else.

Necessary equipment

  • a survival kit consisting of a hip flask filled with whiskey or equivalent must be carried and presented at the start (justified exceptions possible)
