Biking in Croatia

Cycling is a strenuous physical activity and guests must be in reasonably good health to participate. Bike adventure guests are responsible for choosing a tour appropriate to their own fitness level. Also cycling takes place on the open road and as such automobile traffic may be a factor guests must execise all due care when cycling and maintain control of themselves.

We believe that safety flags make our guests more visible to passing motorists, and although not mandatory, we highly recommend and encourage their use during tour.
