Before you can make a payment and finalize your application you must agree to ride according to the BIKE DOCTOR code of conduct. It's nothing too scary but we're a big club. We are very conspicuous so when riding with the club or riding or racing in club kit we have to take extra care to make sure we are riding safely and respectfully of all other road users.
