This is a statement by which Pedalnorth.com informs you of the associated risks inherent to cycling as a activity. Whilst we publish a variety of routes for both road and mountain biking, these are only intended as a assistance tool for riders, who shall make their own decision regarding the actual route to be ridden and the manner of doing so, based upon their skills, their equipment, the terrain, the prevailing weather, and the traffic conditions.
It is the responsibility of the individual cyclist to assess their own abilities against the route that they choose to ride from within the pedalnorth.com route selections. We recommend that all cyclists wear helmets and gloves and eyewear when cycling.
Mountain biking in particular can be hazardous, and riders should be aware that they need to wear safety kit, helmet and have a good knowledge of map reading and first aid.
Cyclists should ensure that their bike is in good condition and the brake is working and all other parts are serviceable before setting off.
Certain parts of both the road routes and the mountain bike routes will have hazardous sections. It is for the rider to choose how and if they tackle these, or whether it is safer and more sensible to walk.
Our routes are published simply as a means of assisting cyclists in their own decisions on where to ride. It is ultimately your decision to ride a route that is shown on our website. The condition of all routes is outside of our control and should be taken into account at the time of your choosing to ride it or otherwise.
We expressly limit our liability in that the routes, articles and reviews published on this website are for information purposes only, and are not intended to constitute professional advice, and that the published information will not always be up to date. Visitors who use this website do so at their own risk.
Pedalnorth.com cannot be held responsible for issues that arise following the riders own decision to ride along a section of a particular route. Our route grading is only a guide. Cyclists should not overstretch their abilities, and should not extend themselves if conditions would dictate more care should be taken.
Cyclists should be well prepared and should carry sufficient food and drink for the journey. Consideration should be given to carrying a first aid kit and maps.
Pedalnorth.com do not accept any responsibility for any death, injury or other loss suffered or caused by cyclists, resulting from their own conduct or any matter or condition under the control of that cyclist that amounts to their own contributory negligence or the condition of their bike or the route itself at the time at which the cyclist visited the route.
