Safety & Disclaimer

Cycling safety

Cyclists are responsible for their own safety and are required to comply with the rules of the road.  All cyclists must wear a helmet, and should wear cycling gloves to prevent cuts and bruises in case of a tumble. We also recommend cycling glasses to protect your eyes. When the weather is sunny, sun cream is also essential. Ideally, each cyclist should have a mobile telephone and all contact numbers with the group leaders.  More detail is provided on our Safe Group Cycling page.
