You will need to be fully self sufficient – these are self-supported rides on routes that are open to the general public, with no emergency back up or mechanical support of any kind. You need to take spares and supplies with you. There will be no rescue vehicle to collect you if you have a mechanical. Make sure you take a mobile phone for any emergencies. Call a friend to collect you or the emergency services in the event of a medical incident. And it is sensible to be insured – you don’t need race insurance, as our rides aren’t races, but general cycle/travel insurance is highly recommended.
The Cross Cartel, Epic Cycles Ltd and any other supporters or associates bear no responsibility for any incidents that occur during your ride – you are solely responsible for your own actions and safety while riding our routes, whatever day you choose to ride them.
Please follow the Highway Code at all times when on the roads, and the Countryside Code when off road – and PLEASE close all gates and take litter home with you.
