Pursuant to new clause (ix) e-mail BankTeller by 5pm this Friday if you expect to join this ride, because 'Three strikes (in any bi-month) and you are out forever', because such memory loss may evidence that you are suffering from dementia that renders you a 'physical safety risk' to other Muggs riders, and also to yourself.  Cyclists over 60 are more vulnerable to dementia and a serious 'trauma caused spinal injury', than younger riders, so provide evidence that you can still remember the simple things, that once were simple.  This You Tube will help.  The bicycle fatality on Kissing Point Rd, Turramurra in 2013 was due to rider error.

We are taking a 20 min Nosh Stop at Glenorie Village after 21.5km from Hornsby, 'cause Pete aka CampyAficinado and Justine aka Trumpeter are then returning via Wylds Rd to Berowra Waters thence Hornsby for 50km 'all up'.  If you don't want to stop riding until the Sackville Ferry Sag Stop after 54km from Hornsby, then start 20 mins later from Hornsby at 8:40am, 'cause from Glenorie we ride SSW along Old Post Office Rd to link up with Cattai Ridge Rd

Risk Warning
Ø    Hardcopy these directions and bring on Sunday

Ø    Expend 5 min studying your street directory for the 2nd (Common) Leg from Cnr Mid Dural Rd and Old Northern Rd left into Cattai Ridge Rd, Halcrows Rd, Sackville Ferry, Wilberforce Rd, The Terrace to Windsor

Ø    Don't ride two abreast on single lane roads with an unbroken centre line and descend corners on wet roads as though you are skating on ice

Ø    When passing a fellow Mugg, always provide a metre clearance.  If you can't, or are passing on the inside, you MUST call out loudly eg. "passing inside" etc

Some forms of cycling are dangerous.  An ave of 37 Australian cyclists have been killed annually since 2000.  95% of these fatalities occur on the road

Other cyclists in Australia break bones and incur nerve impairment from falling off their bikes in accidents. 

A cyclist could fall from his/her bike, inter alia, due to -
(i)      being hit by a car or another cyclist; or
(ii)     encountering a pothole;

(iii)    cycling too fast on a wet road when descending, particularly at corners, where the coefficient of friction is materially less; or
(iv)    getting their bicycle wheel caught in a gap in a timber bridge.

A negligent cyclist could -

(a)    be litigated by a seriously injured cyclist, or 3rd party (ie. a woman pushing a pram on a footpath or a car driver) under common law where the damages could exceed $500,000; and

(b)    lose his/her home if he/she did not have public liability insurance which covers their negligence whilst on a push bike.

A negligent cyclist who did not have personal injury insurance (ie self-employed without income protection cover) could struggle to meet regular outgo commitments.

A seriously injured cyclist could be awarded damages which a negligent cyclist could not afford to pay if the negligent cyclist -
(I)     did not have public liability insurance cover; and/or
(II)    did not possess valuable assets.

     Cycling without Public Liability cover is as silly as driving without 3rd Party -
 join Bike NSW for PL insurance, so that all Muggs are better protected

     Click on: Risk Management which warns of 'inter alia', the dangers of cycling on public roads with motor cars, potholes and over bridges with vertical timber planks with gaps

     Cycling with Muggs is predicated upon notifying Bank Teller if you materially disagree with any clause(s) in Muggaccinos' "Ride Participants Liability Acknowledgment"
