No-Drop Policy - This is a ride where no one gets left behind should a rider not be able to hold the pace or if they have a mechanical or flat tire. These are great rides to start with as they are more conducive to learning how to safely ride in a group.

Disclaimer: As the Whittlesea BUG is a Non for Profit (NFP) organisation we do not provide insurance coverage to individuals. Therefore we strongly advise that riders should have personal injury insurance and/or Ambulance Cover.
