Rider Responsibility

All racers should be aware of the remote nature of the race and be confident in their own abilities as well as understand their responsibilities. There are no aid stations, no support vehicles, and riders will not be assisted by Cycling Westfjords. In the event that a rider chooses not to continue on, arranging transport will be their responsibility. The Westfjords Way open route follows the Westfjords Way with a few additional fjords and gravel.

Riders acknowledge they are riding on open roads and must know and observe all local traffic laws. Ultimately, it’s up to each individual to complete the route to the best of their ability while respecting the rules of the event.
