Chilterns Sportive question about helmets

by darrenleroy   May 16, 2014  

I can't find anywhere on the Wiggle site rules and regulations governing the wearing of helmets on their sportives. I plan to ride the Chilterns Sportive in June and wondered if helmet wearing is compulsory (I don't need a lecture around their safety/lack of safety), I just wondered if they are in fact compulsory. If anyone has ridden a Wiggle Sportive would you mind letting me know. Many thanks.

It is mandatory that all riders wear a safety approved cycling helmet complying with latest ANSI Z90/4 or SNELL standards. Any rider not wearing a helmet will not be covered by the event insurance and will be disqualified from the event and could be liable for damages if involved in an accident on that basis. The rider must accept this as a condition of entry. UK Cycling Events reserve the right to refuse entry to the event to anyone with inappropriate equipment or clothing. The participant confirms that the cycle/bike they are riding for the event and all of their equipment is of a suitable standard and state of trail/road worthiness. In particular, the ability to complete longest distance, and over rough terrain dependant on the event.
