Please go through the following rules and regulations with your child in order to ensure safety of the riders during the bike ride. Failure to comply with the following rules will result in immediate removal of the rider (for their own safety and the
safety of all the other riders).
HIGHWAY CODE RULE 66:
Cyclists must not ride without holding the handlebars with at least one hand, must not allow themselves to be towed by another vehicle, and must not carry, tow, or push objects which hamper their cycling or endanger other road users.
- They must keep to the left of the carriageway and give an appropriate arm signal when they wish to turn.
- In principle, cyclists may not ride more than one abreast. Exceptions to this rule: for instance, cyclists may ride two abreast where the carriageway is wide enough, where cycle traffic is heavy, on cycle tracks, etc.
- They are required to use cycle lanes and tracks. They may not, however, use motorways and similar roads.
- When walking and pushing their bicycles on foot, cyclists are classified as pedestrians and may therefore use the pavement.
ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST:
- Train appropriately in the build up to the ride. (If we feel the rider will not be able to complete the ride we will not allow them to participate.)
- Wear helmets and other appropriate cycling safety gear at all times.
- Drink 2 litres of water daily in the week before the ride.
- Listen to staff at all times and follow instructions.
- Follow the route provided (no detours please).
- Behave appropriately at all times. This includes refraining from: smoking, bad language, signs of aggressiveness (be they physical or verbal) towards other riders, staff or members of the public.
- Be on time and in accordance to the schedule.
- Keep the noise level down in the hotel. (We will be in public or in a hotel most of the time. We must make sure a kiddush Hashem is maintained at all times).
