Terms of Membership
All cyclists ride at your own risk.
Normal common sense plus Highway Code rules apply to all cyclists on all of our rides.
Under 16s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
The rides are not on planned or waymarked routes. They are just social rides on public roads (although we use quiet roads where possible). Routes are often decided on the day among those who turn up.
Newent Cycling Group are affiliated to CTC which gives us Organisers' Liability insurance cover of up to £10 million to protect ride organisers and volunteer ride leaders against any claims made against them. A condition of our affiliation is that cyclists who join a ride must be members of Newent Cycling Group.
Membership does not include Third Party Personal Indemnity Insurance and it is recommended that you have personal insurance cover. This can be obtained by joining organisations such as CTC or British Cycling or even through your own household insurance. As member of a group affiliated to CTC you are also able to obtain Third Party Insurance with CTC. Without insurance you could be liable if, for example, you rode into a car or caused an accident through negligent cycling.
