Abstract 

This document establishes requirements for adventure tourism involving cyclotourism (e.g. road bike, mountain bike or fatbike), relating to the safety of participants, leaders and assistants. In cases of cycle tourism operations that involve overnight stays, additional requirements are required, which are described in Section 11 of this Document. This document also establishes criteria relating to characteristics and difficulty level for cyclotourism route classification. This document applies to cyclotourism that are offered as tourism products. Tourism product design involves a product planning and development phase that is not subject to this document. Some tourism products include cyclotourism together with other tourism services (e.g. transfers, meals, lodging), but this document applies only to cyclotourism, the additional tourism services being excluded from the scope. This document is applicable to any kind of adventure tourism activity provider that offers tourism products consisting of cyclotourism. This document is not applicable to bicycle rental with no adventure tourism purposes, which attend urban or rural mobility needs.
