Events Terms & Conditions

The following terms and conditions apply to all of our events

All riders should understand that by entering a Velo Events event they will be agreeing to the following...

Terms and conditions:

  1. Participants will be responsible for the roadworthiness of their own cycle.
  2. No accompanying vehicles are allowed to follow riders. Any participant failing to observe this regulation will be withdrawn from the event.
  3. This event is not a race or trial of speed, but a personal challenge and as such there will be no list published which sorts riders either in finishing time or finishing position order. An alphabetical list of finishers and times will be published.
  4. As the event takes place on the open road, riders must abide by the Highway Code at all times. Riders should be aware that when riding on a public highway the function of marshals is only to indicate direction and that riders must decide whether the movement is safe.

  6. All participants under the age of eighteen must gain the consent of their parent/guardian prior to completing their entry. Participants must be a minimum of 16 years old, and a parent or guardian must accompany riders under the age of eighteen.
  7. The use of triathlon handlebars is discouraged. However, where riders do have them fitted they are not to be used when riding in a group.
  8. Riders participate in this event entirely at their own risk, and must rely on their own ability in dealing with all hazards, and must ride in a manner which is safe to themselves and others.
  9. No liability whatsoever shall attach to the organiser/promoter, promoting club/organisation, event sponsors, British Cycling or any event official or member of British Cycling or member of the promoting club /organisation in respect of any injury, loss or damage suffered by riders in or by reason of the event, unless such injury, loss or damage is proven to be caused by the negligence of the aforementioned. If riders do not abide by these terms and conditions the organisers will make all reasonable efforts to remove them from the event, and British Cycling will use all efforts to restrict participation in future British Cycling competitive and non-competitive events.
