Cycling can be an enjoyable and exciting activity. However, like many recreational activities that require physical exertion, cycling carries with it the risk of physical injury. The risks associated with cycling include the risk that:
you may be involved in a collision with people, animals, objects and/or vehicles;
you may lose your balance;
you may suffer from the effects of heat, cold, wind, rain and other weather conditions;
you may suffer from physical exertion;
you may become separated from the cycling group; and
you may fall from your bicycle.
These risks may result in death, bodily injury, disability, property damage and economic loss. There are other risks to which you may be exposed. You should ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and safety equipment, including a helmet.
to comply with all directions given to you by Bicycle NSW employees or agents of the organising Bicycle User Group;
to take full and sole responsibility for any person under the age of 18 years who accompanies you in these cycling activities;
that you participate at your own risk; that the agreement for services provided to you by the organising Bicycle User Group does not include any implied or express warranty that the services of the organising Bicycle User Group will be rendered with due care and skill or that any materials provided by the organising Bicycle User Group in connection with the cycling activities will be fit for the purpose for which they are supplied;

An approved Australian Standards helmet is required to be worn on all rides. No helmet, no ride. No exceptions. Please ensure your bike is in good working order and bring a spare tube, a pump, tyre levers, a full water bottle and any other tools you may require. It is also recommended you bring money for food and/or fares and your mobile phone.
Children – these rides are not a child minding service. Children under 13 cannot be accommodated on rides unless they are in a child seat on their parent’s bike or are being towed in a trailer or tag‐along. Children from 13 to 18 need to ride with their parent or guardian and remain under the control of that parent or guardian for the duration of the ride. If in doubt about the suitability of any ride, please contact the ride leader in advance.
