Youth Policy

Home/Youth Policy

If you are under 16 we require a signed consent form and if you are under 14 you should be accompanied by an adult.

Please get in touch with us by email to info@marlowriders.org.uk if you wish to book a ride.

Please note we do not have a section for young members and do not offer coaching.

Youth Policy

Any young cyclist, under the age of 14 years, must be accompanied by a parent or supervising adult and any young cyclist aged 14 to 16 years must have a signed parental consent form.

Marlow Riders reserves the right not to allow any young individual to ride and, in future, may have to limit the number of young cyclists that ride.

This policy will be reviewed every two years to ensure it reflects current legalisation or regulations, or sooner if the management team deem it necessary.
