T&C – Cycle Camps 2021/22
Registering children for school holiday camps:
- The child’s parent or carer must complete and agree to the registration of a child.
- Persons under 18 years of age should wear an approved cycle helmet while undertaking the training.
- The NCA-nw strongly recommends that children wear a helmet that fits correctly.
- I am responsible for any injury that may occur to my child as a consequence of wearing, or not wearing a helmet.
- If I do decide that my child will wear a cycle helmet it will conform to one of the following standards.
- SNELL B90 or;
- My child will dress appropriately for cycling.
- Personal belongings are brought to the training sessions at your own risk and the NCA-nw can accept no responsibility for damage to or loss of any personal belongings.
- I agree that the Instructor(s) can adjust my child’s cycle if necessary.
- In addition, I agree that my child will conduct him/herself in an appropriate manner and follow the directions of the Instructor(s).
- I understand that the NCA is not responsible for any injury or loss or damage to any person or property either on the way to. Or during the training or, on the way from the training unless an Instructor’s deliberate or negligent act or omission causes this.
- I understand that I must accept these terms and conditions before my child’s training session commences. Moreover, I understand that a training session cannot take place if I don’t agree to these terms and conditions. This applies to any training the NCA-nw organises.
- All activities take place initially in a traffic-free space. These will include utilising off-road cycle routes, cycle lanes and MTB trails in Philips Park, Drinkwater and Waterdale and the Outwood trail.
- Suppose your child is taking part in Bikeability Level 1, 2 or 3 courses. Once the trainees reach the necessary standard, they will then be taken out onto local roads for further on-road training.
- The Instructors’ decision is final with regards to the decision to take children out onto the road.
- Training will cover all aspects of safe cycling, including:
- best practice procedures for starting, stopping and turning left and right and;
- to develop skills and basic strategies for dealing with traffic.
- I understand that having taken training, it will not necessarily follow that my child is safe to ride a bicycle. To become proficient will require much more practise than lessons of this kind can provide.
- Mountain Biking: All MTB sessions are organised at Philips Park on the MTB trail, with no change of venue.
- BMX: We travel to the Manchester BMX track at Platt Fields for this taster session. Accordingly, there is a small charge for the minibus hire unless parents are taking their child directly to the venue. Furthermore, the club provides specialist bicycles, and British Cycling coaches deliver the activity.
- Cycle Speedway: We travel to the Bury Cycle speedway club for this taster session, so there is a small charge for the minibus hire unless parents are taking their child directly to the venue. Furthermore, the club provides specialist bicycles, and British Cycling coaches deliver the activity.
