Although the trail mostly takes us through populated areas and you drive on a paved section, we also come across a macadam part of the trail, while we always think that on longer rides it is necessary to bring a mini tool and a tire patch, so the rule applies to this section. We definitely recommend that you tell your family or friends about your cycling plans before you go for a ride.
