3.0 Things in our control
3.1 You must wear an approved cycle helmet while riding in Spain, and you must obey the applicable rules of the road at all times.
3.2 You must follow the instructions of A&B staff and management at all times.
3.3 You assert:
3.3.1 that you are physically fit and there is no health or other reason why you should not participate fully in the our cycling holidays or cycling training camps.

3.3.3 that you will complete a Diet, Exercise and Lifestyle Questionnaire and a Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q), 30 days in advance of your arrival.
