  • Cycling with Muggs is predicated upon being in general agreement with this Muggaccinos' "Ride Participants Liability Acknowledgment"

  • Ride Organiser:  Phil Johnston - 9498.3684 hm

  • Hardcopy these directions, take a squiz of the route NW and bring on Sunday as this is a complex route

  • Keep well to LHS and DO NOT cycle two abreast on single lane roads with an unbroken centre line

  • Cycling without Public Liability cover is as stupid as driving without 3rd Party - join Bicycle NSW for PL insurance cover, so that all Muggs are better protected; or check whether your household insurers will provide PL cover beyond your front fence at a cheaper rate

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