Do I need a permit to participate?
You can participate with or without a permit.
Do I have to register in advance?
No, but it does offer you a cheaper rate and extra benefits.
Will I meet riders from the race?

Can I participate with an e-bike, gravel or cross bike?
You can, although the course is primarily designed for traditional mountain bikes.
I registered in advance but would like to change the distance. Is this possible?
Yes, this is possible. A participation ticket for the tour is valid for all tour distances. If you change your distance, you do not have to report this to us.
