Whether you ride 30 or 300 miles a week, it’s imperative to prioritise skincare. Looking after your skin will enable you to push harder, perform better, and ride in comfort for longer. You only notice how impressive your skin is when it stops doing what it should. Chapped or cracked skin, razor burns or soreness in sensitive places. Suddenly, your plans of riding 100 miles at the weekend seem like an activity you’d rather avoid. We want to keep you on the road by preserving your skin’s performance. That’s the driving force behind VeloSkin.

NEG Group

www.neggb.org.uk

In 1999 UK Sport and British Cycling called for a method of providing mobile safety cover for all road based sporting events (cycle racing, triathlons, marathons, etc). Former Sussex Police Chief Inspector Andy Relf formed the NEG by putting together a team of civilian motorcycle marshals made up of off-duty police and retired police motorcyclists. The NEG was approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), RoSPA and the HSE and was accepted by British Cycling (BC) and the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) as the only organisation accredited to ensure the safety of competitors and general public when cycle race events are held on the public highway. NEGGB motorcycle marshals can carry out various duties such as warning the general public and oncoming road users of an approaching event, keeping event organisers and participants informed of progress, reporting rule infringements, checking route signage, marshalling an obstruction or potential hazard and complimenting static marshals. Some NEGGB members can be engaged by the event organiser to carry pillion passengers such as officials, timing blackboards, judges or commissaries. Other members can be employed by media companies to carry press photographers or cameramen. In such cases the NEGGB member may reasonably expect the organiser or media company to provide a risk assessment of the expected duties
