CTC National Cycling Council's cycling development committee has recognised the need for a participation policy for children and young people taking part in recreational cycling activities. The policy is particularly aimed at club runs, touring, charity rides, randonnees, try-outs and family rides.

CTC recognises:

·        Anyone under the age of 18 is considered to be a child/young person

·        The policy refers to vulnerable adults as well as children

It is not intended that this policy is a deterrent. CTC Grampian welcomes young people on our rides.


The full policy may be viewed by clicking:Click on link at bottom of this page

In summary, CTC participation rules for all activities:

·        All individuals <18 years to complete a CTC Standard Entry Form with signature of parent/guardian

·        Parent/guardian to accompany all children <13 years and complete CTC Standard Entry Form


The CTC Standard Entry form can be downloaded for completion by clicking:  See below

or obtained from any Runs Leader, or from the Secretary.
