BIKING WHILST RESPECTING NATURE
Throwing rubbish to the ground when biking is a terrible habit, not only when it occurs out in the stunning and unspoilt landscape of the Dolomites, but also on the streets of our villages. Far too often, however, the route bikers follow during a road or mountain bike race are left littered. Such behaviour, apart from being uncivilised and lacking in respect, is also very dangerous for the fauna to be found near the paths along the race route. To counter such behaviour the Organising Committee of the BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites asks all participating bikers to keep empty gel and cream containers in their pockets, and so protect the landscape and not run the risk of being disqualified. True heroes distinguish themselves in adhering to the simple and worthy code we establish.
