All members must familiarise themselves with our Code of Conduct and related Code of Safe Riding Standards. By joining and cycling with us you are agreeing to abide by our Codes. All members are will be asked to sign our LBOYB/BCC Terms & Exclusion of Liability form.


The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to provide a clear outline of the values, behaviours and standards we expect from our members. Our goal is to create a culture that ensures all members enjoy a safe, supportive, inclusive, fun riding environment, and we continue to maintain a great safety record and positive camaraderie that has made us successful to date.


The Code of Conduct places an obligation on all members to take responsibility for their own conduct, to be tolerant, safe, responsible riders and be willing to support and educate new members on our values, behaviours and standards in a positive and friendly manner. 


We all may need a gentle reminder from time to time. We all make mistakes. Be courteous and anticipate others’ mistakes. Always look to improve your riding and acknowledge your own mistakes to learn. 


Members must adhere strictly to the relevant Road Rules and must not put themselves or fellow cyclists, whether Members or not, in danger. Safety in our sport is of the utmost importance, and members must not only look out for themselves, but also for fellow members and cyclists. We all have a responsibility to ensure safety and mutual respect is shown to all road and pathway users. 

Those bound by this code shall:

  • Show a positive commitment to our guidelines, expectations and standards

  • Act in a manner compatible with the interests of LBOYB and BCC

  • Treat others and their property with courtesy and respect and due consideration

Questions or complaints regarding the Code of Conduct or behaviour of members should be raised with the business owners, Narelle Beurle or Karen Gittins. Complaints will be handled confidentially and fairly.
