Terms & Conditions

This website is owned and operated by PRiDE OUT. These Terms set forth the terms and conditions under which you may use our website and services as offered by us. By accessing or using the website of our service, you approve that you have read, understood, and agree to be bound by these Terms.

These terms and conditions should be read alongside  In the event of any inconsistencies, the coronavirus-covid-19 guidance should be followed.

PRiDE OUT organises rides to encourage as many people as possible to get into cycling and keep riding. We’ve created these terms and conditions for the safety of everyone taking part in these rides. All riders should read these carefully before joining a ride.


Ride: any of the rides for which you can register through

Rider: anyone taking part in a ride.

Organiser: All rides are organised by PRiDE OUT with organisers insurance provided via Cycling UK.

Who we are

PRiDE OUT is a sports group. 

Cycling UK regulates PRiDE OUT and provides insurance and guidance for all PRiDE OUT ride events.

Riders’ health

Cycling is a physical activity and can be strenuous. Riders should be in good health and any rider who has a doubt about their health or fitness, or who has a medical condition or injury that could be affected by exercise (particularly a heart condition), should consult their doctor before participating. No-one should participate in a ride under the influence of alcohol or drugs (complying with the Road Traffic Act 1988).


Event Participation
Health and Safety

All rides are designed entirely for cycles (including electric cycles). All riders must ensure that their cycles are in a roadworthy condition, must observe the rules of the Highway Code and follow the instructions of any officials, marshals and the Police. The organiser’s decision shall be final as to whether a cycle is of an appropriate type or condition to be used on rides.

In compliance with British Cycling’s rules and regulations, helmets are compulsory for under-18s, and recommended but not compulsory for adults, taking part in our rides.

The organiser, sponsors or promoters of the ride may take photographs or videos of the ride and riders for publicity purposes. By registering to participate in the ride either on your own behalf or upon behalf of any other rider you agree that photographic images of you or those containing you.

Photographs and video may be taken by a rider for their own personal record of a ride. All other riders should be made aware of this. Those wishing to take photos are requested to be open and honest about this. If any rider or organiser objects, then all other participants should be requested not to take any photos of the ride.

Photographs and video may also be taken by individuals not directly connected to the ride, for whatever reason, and riders should be aware that the organiser, sponsors or promoters have no control over this.

Riders must not wear earphones while taking part in a ride.

No pets are permitted to attend the rides.

Event Cancellation

The organiser may cancel any rides at their discretion. They will endeavour to give as much notice as possible of any cancellations. The organiser accepts no liability for any costs incurred as a result of the cancellation.

Risk and liability
While the organiser of the ride will do all in their reasonable control to make the ride as safe as possible, but all riders take part at their own risk.


None of the organisers, sponsors or promoters of the ride accept liability for any loss or damaged caused where:

a) there is breach of a contractual obligation or legal duty of care owed to you;

b) such loss or damage is not reasonably foreseeable at the time of breach

c) an injury is sustained or property damaged in the course of the ride or as a result of taking part in the ride;


(d) any changes are made to the route or conduct of the ride for safety or operational reasons or as otherwise required for the safe and proper carrying out of the event; except for death or personal injury caused by their negligence, fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or any other matter for which it would be illegal or unlawful for them to exclude or attempt to exclude their liability.
