Parental Consent Notes

1. It is part of the British Cycling Code of Conduct to ensure that reasonable steps are taken to establish a safe environment where young people can enjoy developing their cycling skills.

3. Young people are expected to remain in the session from beginning to end unless they have to leave early. If the young person has to leave early or is being collected by someone other than the parent/carer, the coach must be informed of the details of the arrangement, including who will be collecting the rider.

4. It is the young person’s responsibility to participate in cycling activities in a sporting manner.

6. It is the parent/carer’s responsibility to ensure that their child’s bike is in a safe condition to ride.

7. A correctly fitting cycling helmet must be worn at all times during the cycling activity sessions.

8. For all children under 12 years, coaching sessions will take place at a traffic-free facility. Over 12s may be involved in coaching sessions that take place on the public highway. Young people are only invited to take part when the coaches feel they are sufficiently responsible for their own actions and have developed the necessary bike handling skills and fitness levels in order to cope with riding on the public highways.
