Please read all sections. Knowing this rider information in advance will greatly enhance your enjoyment and the smooth running of the event. Thank you!

Our prime concern is for the safety and well-being of all participants in the ride.

We apply a "NO HELMET, NO RIDE" policy - all riders will be turned back at the start if they are not correctly wearing a proper cycle helmet.

16-mile and 25 - mile rides - it is strongly recommended that children under 10 be attached to the adult's bicycle, e.g. bike seat or tagalong, as there are some steep hills and it's a long way! It is solely the responsibility of the named adult rider to decide whether children are sufficiently competent and fit enough to complete the ride.

50-mile ride - this is a testing ride and not recommended for children under the age of 16.

75-mile sportive - this is a challenging ride and should only be attempted by riders confident of completing the distance in the time available.

Before the Ride
