    guardian must accompany riders under the age of sixteen.

    All cyclists must adhere to and obey the Highway Code and laws of Scotland. All riders in a
    group must ride in an orderly manner in accordance with the law relating to road travel, not
    more than two abreast, and extend all reasonable courtesy to other road users. 

    This challenge is not a race and there is no minimum speed which riders are required to cycle at.
    You must be considerate that cyclists of all levels may be participating.

    You acknowledge that there are risks associated with cycling events including falls,
    contact and/or collision with pedestrians & other riders, vehicles, the effect of
    weather including heat and/or humidity, the condition of the roads, and possibly the
    serious physical and/or mental trauma or injury associated with cycling events and
    you are taking part at their own risk.

    You acknowledge and understand the dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol and/or drugs before, during and after the event and understand this may impair judgement and motor skills. By participating in this event you confirm that you will not consume alcohol and/or drugs before or during the event.

    Individual support cars are strictly forbidden; any participants seen to use one will be taken
    out of the event and disqualified.

    Cyclosportives are designed as events for serious cyclists who have the strength, endurance
    and stamina to successfully complete the challenge. Please ensure you have done the right
    level of training to go for your standard and/or chosen distance. You must ensure that you

    advised that all participants carry enough food, drink, money, mobile phone, spare inner
    tubes and a working pump, as well as extra clothing to complete the ride being undertaken,
    taking into account the route and possible adverse weather conditions.
    The use of triathlon handlebars is discouraged in such events. However, where riders do
    have them fitted they are not to be used when riding in a group.

    Cycling is a very popular activity, in which the contact with nature is fundamental. We firmly
    ask you not to throw anything on the roads (paper, wrap, bottles....): the natural environment
    must be preserved and the longevity of the Drumlanrig Challenge depends on this. Trash
    bags will be available for you at controls and stations where you can dispose of your empty
    bottles, wrappers etc. Give the environment the respect it deserves.

    Below are some additional conditions for this event:-


    • There will be marshals (wearing fluorescent vests) located at certain points on the route. All
    volunteers and staff involved in the event will be clearly identifiable. The marshals do not
    have the authority to stop motorists ; they are there for your safety and other road users. It
    is the responsibility of each participant to take the correct course.
    • You may not use your mobile phone while riding. You must stop at the side of the road if
    you need to make or receive a call.
    • Rider's number, issued at registration, must be displayed on the front of the bike for
    identification.

    • Organisers will endeavour to provide fluid and some form of food at designated "feed
    zones" however we cannot guarantee supplies will be available at all times and urge riders
    to be mindful of the needs of those following behind.

    • You are not required to complete the course within the allocated time to be classified as a
    finisher. Any rider who does not reach the refreshment station and check point at
    Drumlanrig before the event closes for the day will simply have to provide the promoter with
    proof they did complete the course.

    • A Broom Wagon will follow the event. All cyclists overtaken by this vehicle, and who are
    unlikely to finish before the close of the day will be given the option to either get in the van,
    or to go on without the support which the event can offer, and at their own risk.


    Liability

    volunteers, individual riders are advised to arrange their own cover for third party liability and
    or personal accident insurance to meet their needs
    .

    organisation shall be liable for:
