It is participants responsibility to be safe and follow the Highway Code, instructions of the race marshals and be aware of any pedestrians, traffic or crossings that you come across whilst on the route. Failure to do so could result in disqualification from the race. It is compulsory that all participants wear an approved cycle helmet during this discipline. (For those new to triathlon this means fastening your helmet securely on your head before removing your bike from the bike racking and not undoing the helmet until after you have returned your bike to the racking after the cycle leg is completed).
