Safety: please see our Golden Rules of the Road.


Cycling on the highway is a potentially hazardous activity, and although the organisers will do all they can to make the Bike Ride as safe as possible all riders take part at their own risk. All riders are expected to observe the rules of the Highway Code, to obey the Rules of the Road (included in the Entrants' Pack sent to each registered rider) and to follow the instructions of the event organisers. Neither the Burgess Hill and District Rotary Club nor the Burgess Hill District Lions Club (or their members and other event organisers) can be held responsible for loss or damage to personal effects, or for death or illness of or injury to any participant, or loss, damage or injury to the general public or their property.  Organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to the ride.

Your Health

Cycling can be strenuous and riders must be in good health and reasonably fit. It is the responsibility of all riders to ensure that they are medically fit to take part in the Bike Ride. If you have a medical condition which may be adversely affected by exercise (particularly a heart condition) or if you are in any doubt about your health you must get clearance from your doctor before participating. If you are not a regular cyclist we recommend that you take a bike ride two or three times a week for several weeks prior to the event, gradually increasing the distance you cycle.

All cyclists MUST wear a suitable cycling helmet.
