Important Notice

Cycling can be an enjoyable and exciting activity.  However, like many recreational activities that require physical exertion, cycling carries with it the risk of physical injury.

The risks associated with cycling include the risk that you may:

and these risks may result in death, bodily injury, disability, property damage and economic loss to yourself and others.

There are other risks to which you may be exposed.  You should ensure that you wear appropriate clothing and safety equipment, including a helmet.

By participating in the cycling activities provided by EuroBUG and the ride leaders and organisers, you agree:


You are advised that a negligent cyclist could be litigated by a seriously injured cyclist, or third party (ie. a woman pushing a pram on a footpath or a car driver) under common law.


Hence, cycling without Public Liability cover is not recommended.  Join Bicycle NSW or a similar organisation for Public Liability insurance, or extend your household insurance cover to provide you Public Liability cover beyond your front fence, so that all riders are better protected.  Some house contents policies automatically include this type of cover.
