  • I am aware that when riding on a public highway the function of marshals (if provided) is only to indicate direction and that I must decide whether the movement is safe.

  • I understand and agree that I participate in this event entirely at my own risk, that I must rely on my own ability in dealing with all hazards, and that I must ride in a manner which is safe to myself and others.
  • I accept that if I do not abide by these terms and conditions that the organisers will make all reasonable efforts to remove me from the event.


I agree that no liability whatsoever shall attach to the promoter, promoting organisation, event sponsors, CTC, any event official or member of CTC, or any official or member of the promoting organisation in respect of any injury, loss or damage suffered by me in or by reason of the event, unless such injury, loss or damage is proven to be caused by the negligence of the aforementioned.
