Further fire precautions - exhaust header pipes and tall grass

Thank you Gordon for bring this up. Riders need to be aware that exhaust header pipes can get hot enough to set light to dry grass and brush.

None of the GR300 routes go off established gravel roads. There is no need to ride through grass, bush, brush, hedge, undergrowth, overgrowth, saplings, shrubberies, thickets, copses, scrub, jungle, brambles or verdure.

Be mindful of where you park your bike, away from any possible points of combustion please!

We need to show that we can be responsible travellers in the backcountry in these current conditions.
