Bike and Clothing Safety
Our foremost concern at Grampian Tigers is that all riders can enjoy every session in safety. All coaches are outdoor first aid trained and each session is planned and risk assessed.
However, it is parents/carers responsibility to ensure that every child comes to the sessions with a bike in safe working condition, a helmet and gloves and suitable clothing. Below are some helpful excerpts from the British Cycling handbook on how to ensure that both bike and rider are safe. Please refer to it every now and again and check the bike.
Riders with bikes or clothing that are deemed unsafe by coaches will not be allowed to participate in any cycling activities.
Bike Remedy in Stonehaven have kindly agreed to provide maintenance and servicing at a discounted cost to Grampian Tigers members as well as competitive pricing on new bikes and clothing. Ask the coaches for more details.
