On rare occasions we may get vulnerable adults or younger cyclists joining our rides. Under these circumstances it’s important for ride leaders to be aware of the precautions to be taken, and to ensure an awkward situation does not occur. Cycling UK has a number of useful safeguarding guides – see here. If you anticipate leading a ride that may include vulnerable adults or children, please read in particular the Safeguarding Code of Conduct.
The Guidelines and Advice to Ride Leaders on our WSCC website have been updated accordingly.
