Booking and Advice

Advice, Disclaimer and Booking Information

Although each event has been researched with a view to minimising the risks to participants who follow its route, no event can ever be considered to be  completely free of risk. Activities in the outdoors will always require a degree of common sense and judgement. Participants need to be aware that some of the routes will have potential hazards such as uneven ground, rabbit holes or furrows or other possible trip risk. When cycling on the road there may be potholes and when off road there may be uneven ground and slippery conditions. Each individual is responsible for their own safety and must not act in ways that present risk or discomfort for themselves and others.

Participants duties include; to:

  • Be aware of changes in the weather and check the forecast before setting out;
  • Ensure you have suitable clothing and footwear for the weather conditions & terrain:
  • Cyclists will not be allowed to ride if they are not wearing a helmet.
  • Ensure bikes are road worthy and suitable for long distances and off road use. Repair facilities are not provided.
  • Carry water.

Outdoor activities can be demanding and distances and times stated are only an estimate. If there are any doubts about fitness and capability then the participant should consult a doctor and if they have a medical condition ensure someone in the group knows about it in advance. If you intend to leave the event before the end, please make sure you inform the leader. Distances in the brochure are estimates for guidance. We are sorry but many of the paths are not suitable for wheelchairs. Please contact the tour leader for advice.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead.

During the Festival, as part of the event we will be taking photographs and we may later use these photographs on Facebook, the website and future publicity. You are more than welcome to tag yourself in these photos so your friends can see what you’ve been doing!

Except where indicated, advance booking is not required, though it is recommended and we cannot guarantee participation for those who have not pre-booked.
