Sépaq wishes you an unforgettable outdoor experience and invites you to be Careful by nature!
During the winter, the trails used for fatbiking are often shared with people who are hiking or snowshoeing. As fatbiking is relatively new, other users will not necessarily be used to your presence, so be careful and make sure to respect hikers.
1. Prepare your outing
Make sure your equipment is in good condition and that you have everything needed for repairs. Don't overestimate your abilities. Check the weather forecast and prepare yourself accordingly.
2. Do not cycle on a closed trail
A trail can be closed to protect the environment or to prevent injury. Cycling on a closed trail can be dangerous or cause damage.
3. Do not ride when the snow is too soft
If you cannot ride in a straight line, if your tires are sinking more than 2.5 cm (1”), or if you must get off your fat bike to climb a gentle slope, it is a sign that the snow is too soft, very wet, or soggy. At that point, it is strongly recommended that you not ride on the trails so as not to undermine their quality for future users.
4. Respect wildlife and the environment
Cycle in such a way as not to damage the trail. Avoid unnecessary skidding and wheel locks. Do not throw garbage on the trails and do not frighten the animals.
5. Always cycle on the trail
Do not intentionally cycle off the trails. Avoid taking an unmarked shortcut, which could cause harm to yourself and the ecosystem.
6. Cycle with caution and be courteous at all times
Slow down when you approach other cyclists and politely let them know that you are near at hand. When descending a two-way trail, the ascending cyclist has priority over the descending cyclist.
7. Cycle slowly on busy trails
For your safety and the safety of others, cycle slowly when trails are busy.
8. Wear a helmet
It is strongly recommended that you wear a helmet at all times during your activity.
Don't forget, Québec's national parks are governed by certain rules and guidelines.
