GENERAL DISCLAIMER: Most activities involve some element of risk. Cycling, in particular, is an inherently dangerous activity and requires an appropriate level of fitness. While U3A maintains public liability insurance and will endeavour to protect your safety, it cannot remove all the dangers. It assumes that participants, by booking, consider themselves to have appropriate levels of fitness and mobility. Those undertaking activities should therefore be aware that they participate at their own risk.
