If you are 80%
confident of joining this ride, predicated upon a fine morn',
please let Bank Teller
know by e-mail by 5pm Sat.
Division 5 of the
Liabilities and Personal Responsibility Act (NSW) 2002, any
that decides to accept a Ride Invitation (such as that contained in this
Bullsheet) to participate in a
Dangerous Recreational Activity needs to inform the
by email before attending
the Ride. The alternative to notifying the
Inviter by email
by 5pm the day before the ride that he/she intends to participate in, is for the
to re-introduce his former
Ride Sign On Sheet which
Bike North and other BUGs
assiduously use to mitigate
cyclists share the road with heavy, fast vehicles. Hence, road
cycling can be fatal.
An ave of 36 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 downhill where the
coefficient of friction is much less, particularly at corners; 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
(I) did not have public liability insurance cover; and/or
(II) did not possess valuable assets.
without Public Liability cover is as silly as driving without
Third Party -
join Bicycle NSW for PL insurance, so that all Muggs are better protected
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
Muggs is predicated upon notifying
Bank Teller if you
materially disagree with any clause(s) in Muggaccinos'
"Ride Participants Liability Acknowledgment"
Ø Hardcopy these directions and bring on Sunday
5 min studying your street
directory for this route, if you haven't ridden it before
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
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"
or "passing close" etc

of Patonga on a pristine, perfect morn'
We called a 'Power Play' Nosh Stop at the General Store
after alighting the Patonga Ferry and doing the customary 5 min clockwise
reconnoiter of Patonga taking us thru the camp ground, cause that nasty climb up
Patonga rd awaited.
