Our Standard Terms & Conditions: For your reference

What you will need:

  • Personal accident insurance (this is your personal choice)
  • Suitable clothing for the activity of mountain biking and for the forecast weather conditions on the day
  • A British Standard approved cycling helmet that is in an acceptable and safe condition

  • Fully working and serviced mountain bike in good condition
  • Sufficient drinks and ride snacks
  • At least one backpack to carry snacks, drink, spare layers, sun protection and personal belongings
  • Preferably at least x1 spare inner tube for your wheel size, spare chain link* (we do not carry spare 12-speed links) and any specific tools or spares for your bike you would usually carry
    * The spare chain link (powerlink) is a ‘nice-to-have’ but not a necessity
  • Your coach will be carrying a comprehensive trail leaders pack

CV19 and Social Distancing: Important please read

Taking responsibility:
  • Leaders, instructors and participants must consider safety first, particularly minimising the risk of infection/transmission and the risk of injury that places further pressure on the NHS
  • Riders are participating at their own risk, Marmalade MTB will be keeping a record of attendance of this session along with rider consent
Social distancing guidelines:
  • Social distancing measures should be respected at all times during the session
  • All the participants are at higher risk of being directly exposed to respiratory droplets released by someone talking or coughing when you are within 2 metres of someone and have face-to-face contact with them. All of the participants can lower the risk of infection if you stay side-to-side rather than facing people
  • Face masks per person in case of a first aid emergency
  • Each rider to supply and carry their own mask
  • Riders should be encouraged to wear appropriate safety equipment for the activity, recognising the need to minimise risk of injury
  • Any shared equipment used during an activity should be cleaned before and after each session
  • Avoid activities that require contact directly or indirectly (i.e. high-5’s, hand shakes, the passing of a water bottle)
  • No sharing of drinks bottles should be allowed, with riders asked to bring their own labelled drinks
  • Gloves are not mandatory as the World Health Organisation (WHO) advice is that it is preferable not to wear gloves but to regularly wash your hands
