It is the responsibility of the individual cyclist to assess their own abilities against the route that they choose to ride from within the pedalnorth.com route selections.
Mountain biking in particular can be hazardous, and riders should be aware that they need to wear safety kit, and have a good knowledge of map reading and first aid.
Cyclists should ensure that their bike is in good condition and the brake is working and all other parts are servicable before setting off.
Certain parts of both the road routes and the mountain bike routes will have hazardous sections. It is for the rider to choose how and if they tackle these.
Our routes are published simply as a means of assisting cyclists in their own decisions on where to ride.
Pedalnorth.com cannot be held responsible for issues that arise following the riders own decision to ride along a section of a particular route. Our route grading is only a guide.
