In the Giant Mountains National Park, the cycling route markers are different to markers used in areas outside the national park. Here, there are special wooden markers with a picture of a cyclist and the route number.
In zones 1 and 2 of the national park it is prohibited to ride a bike off marked trails. Outside the national park, cycling routes are indicated by markers similar to those which mark footpaths, except that yellow is used instead of white edge bands. Footpath markers can also be followed on wide roads for vehicles outside the national park.
The distances stated are one way only and need to be doubled for return journeys. Distance should be taken into account when combining routes. Route distances can also be measured on tourist maps.
