For everyone taking part in Wheel For Well Being activities
- Use your brakes to stop (not your feet, not a fence).
- Look to see if anyone is coming before starting to ride.
- One way cycling along the designated circuit only.
If we find that ground rules are not observed to our satisfaction, we reserve the right to ask participants/carers to leave the track for the session.
On occasions, our Instructors may insist on a helmet being worn. Otherwise, the use of a helmet is discretionary.
A helmet should:
- Fit snugly and comfortably around the head.
- Sit low on the forehead, so the brim is a finger’s width above the eyebrows.
- Leave room for 2 fingers between the strap and the neck.
* If you are unsure, check with one of our Cycle Instructors.
- Leave cycles safe and ready for the next participant to use.
- Inform WfW Instructors if there is a fault with a cycle.
Many thanks and Happy Cycling!
