If you encounter a brown bear despite all precautions and attention, first try to stay calm; If you believe you can escape, start pedaling with all your strength, but it is useful to keep in mind that a bear can run at an average speed of 50-60 km / h.

Do not panic, wait patiently and steadfastly to lose interest in a quiet and motionless manner.
