Terms and Conditions - participation in the Isle of Wight Randonnee
The IoW Randonnee is NOT a race. It is held on public roads, many of which are small country lanes, which are shared with cars and other vehicles, walkers, and horses. Please observe the Highway Code at all times and take great care particularly at junctions. Many of the participants in the Randonnee will be at either end of the age spectrum, often riding in family groups and no prizes (or kudos) will be awarded for quick times or aggressive overtaking. The route is demanding with approximately 1500 meters of climb in the 100km route. Please ensure that both you and your bicycle are in a roadworthy condition, that you are appropriately fit and trained for the event and if in any doubt or you have any medical condition you should consult with your doctor before entering. Please ensure that you have appropriate clothes and sustenance for the conditions, though food and drink will be available for purchase at some of the checkpoints.
The IoW Randonnee is undertaken at the participants own risk and the organisers cannot be held liable for any injury, loss or damage sustained as a result of your riding or actions. There is no entry fee for the Randonnee and the organisers do not insure individual participants for their own or third party loss. It is recommended that all persons cycling on public roads carry third party liability cover as a minimum and this can be obtained by joining the CTC or British Cycling.
All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult and participants under the age of 18 must have a signed parental consent form; the form is available here or from Randonee checkpoints
It is strongly recommended that all participants wear helmets complying with appropriate and current safety standards at all times. A map of the route will be available at the checkpoints and the route is signposted but please be aware that signs can be removed or changed without our knowledge so care should be taken to ensure that the correct route is being followed.
