The Disclaimer

Cycling is an inherently dangerous sport.

The Tribe welcomes all riders, but do not assume any liability for your participation.
"The Tribe" includes the officers, committee members and nominated ride leaders of "The Tribe Mountain Bike Club".

In no event, shall The Tribe accept any liability for any injury, loss, or damage incurred by use of, or reliance, on information from the website, documents, or from participating in group rides with The Tribe. By participating in any group rides arranged or co-ordinated by The Tribe, you acknowledge, appreciate, and agree that:

The risk of injury from cycling is significant, and while particular skills, equipment and personal discipline may reduce this risk, the risk of serious and potentially fatal injury does exist; Knowingly and freely assume all such risks, both known and unknown, whether arising from the negligence by yourself or others, to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Tribe strongly recommend that all members take out appropriate third party liability insurance for their cycling activities. Appropriate insurance cover is available through the clubs affiliation to CTC and is open to all club members.

By particpating in a ride you are agreeing to abide by The Tribe Mountain Bike Club Rules and to act responsibly and adhere to the rules of the road and countryside. You should only be starting the ride if you are fit and healthy enough to participate in the activities organised by the club as described in the diary listing and your bicycle is in a safe, legal and roadworthy condition. The ratings given to rides are subjective and are subject to change due to weather our route changes made by the leader. You should come prepared to do a longer ride than what is described to ensure it is within your level of ability no matter what changes are forced. You also accept that The Tribe cannot be held responsible for any personal injury, accident, loss, damage or public liability during club rides and events

All riders must obey the Highway Code and Country Code at all times.

Ride leaders and fellow riders will be happy to offer general advice on off-road riding and will politely point out any deviations from these guidelines to the rider(s) concerned. If they believe that a rider’s conduct is putting others at risk then The Tribe provide ride leaders with the authority to exclude the offender from the ride and can subsequently report the circumstances to the club committee who may wish to take further action. No tuition will be given on The Tribe MTB rides. Riders may seek advice from more experienced riders, however any advice given is of a personal opinion only and nobody is qualified to provide professional tuition on a club ride. Discussions may arise on how best to navigate a particular hazard but it is not possible to predict or assess the capabilities of a rider during these type of rides or discussions. Anyone wishing to advance their skills through professional tuition route should seek the services of a registered competent person or training centre for Mountain Biking.
