Rules and tips for your trolley ride
The trolley bicycles are to be used in such a way that you can stop them on a short notice. Please note that there can be other bikers out on the track and that they might be heading in your direction. Trolleys going in the direction to Åseda(on their way back from Virserum) have priority, life of your bike if you meet anyone going in that direction. Please show consideration to other bikers and lift off your trolley when you take longer brakes along the route.
When crossing roads you must stopand check for cars. Walk the trolley over the road and through track switches, they can easily derail if you bike through them.
