Conditions of Participation

The BaltiCCycle (BC) is not a commercial tour, all organizers are volunteers, and the membership fee collected goes only for covering organizational expenses. Joining the BC you become a part of the team, and we expect from you the goodwill, the right understanding of our principles and rules, as well as the offering assistance when organizers need it.

The BaltiCCycle 2014 tour “Canary Islands” is scheduled for advanced participants having experience in travels, especially in mountain regions. The majority of route will follow the surfaced roads though of very different quality. You should be ready for adventures, adverse weather conditions (especially hot temperature) and mountains routes. The ride is open for everybody but before signing you should think about your potential to complete it not bringing troubles to yourself and others. As in each island we will hire another minibus, all your items to the ferry from island to island you have to transport yourself.
BC participants gather for the ride from different countries and continents. We recommend bringing on your bike a national flag or other symbols that local people could see us as international friendly cycling community.

Note. The organizers reserve the right to alter these conditions (or even cancel the ride)  if  less than 15 participants register until December 1, 2013.  This is the date of expiring of discounts, too. We must know number of participants to book sleeping places in advance, and you also have to book your flights in advance. After registering you will be regularly informed by email about the registration progress.


Organizational principles. It is a similar trip to the previous BC tours:

Arrival / Departure. The cost of arrival / departure is not included in the membership fee; you have to arrange transport by yourself. If you are going to join or finish the ride in another place, you have to plan it yourself, too. We can pick you up for the additional fee (4 Euro per 10 km) in the radius of 50 km. You have to inform us about it at least 2 days in advance.
A lot of low-cost airlines fly to the Canary Islands, including Ryanair, Easyjet, Monarch,, Norwegian. The cheapest flights are from UK (for example from London-Gatwick to Lanzarote on Monday and Friday at 7 a.m. costs in September 2013 one way 75,90 Euro; to Fuerteventura similar price), Spain (from Barcelona for example Vueling flights), Dublin Aerlingus, Berlin AirBerlin. More expensive but direct are charter flights from your own countries.

It will be possible during the whole period to contact the ride organizers by mobile phone or email. Though the ride schedule is already fixed but the real dates can be slightly shifted (plus/minus 1-2 days) because of unexpected obstacles. Have it in your mind when planning your travel.

Visas. Citizens of EU can stay in Canary Islands up to 90 days in accordance to a valid Identify Card or passport.

Ferries. We will use such service between islands. The price of tickets is not included in the participation fee, and you have to pay for the tickets separately. For six ferries (including bicycle) we will need 222 Euro per person. We hope to receive a group discount.

Catering. It depends only on you. It is recommended to bring along a gas stove for preparing meal in the campsites and enough drinkable water during the day – it will be hot. If the tap of drinkable water is not available in the campsite, you will find water in our van.

Bicycle: to rent or to import it from your own? It’s more advisable to take your own bike. First of all, the own bicycle is more reliable and comfortable. Additionally, when transporting the bike by Ryanair, Wizzair and some other airlines there is no need to pay for a baggage, as the permitted wheel weight can be up to 30 kg. So the big items like tent, sleeping bag, etc. you can pack with the bike in the same box. You pay only for the bike (the price is similar to the baggage). The bike rental costs 8-9 Euro per day, and you have to return it at the same island, where it was rented.

Necessary equipment and documents:

Children until 18. Children can take part in the ride only together with parents (one or both) or another adult who is authorized by notary to take care and is fully responsible for the juvenile.

Luggage transport. We recommend carrying the necessary personal stuff in the panniers on your bike. The service of luggage transportation is limited to 20 kg. The luggage for transportation should be packed to a standard bag (you will receive the bag after arrival), and it is included in the registration fee. In case of emergency (car accident or some other unexpected circumstances) and during transportation to the ferry from island to island you should be ready to carry all your stuff on the bike. If you plan to transport any additional bag in the support bus you have to indicate when registering and pay in advance (2 Euro per day).
Neither organizers nor drivers are responsible for safety of your luggage. You should insure or protect your luggage against theft personally.

Membership fee – 17 Euro/day. You have to indicate the number of days you plan to travel in the table of the Registration Form, and your membership fee for the whole tour will be counted automatically. Full membership fee must be paid at least 7 days before your start day; otherwise it increases by 10%.
The membership fee will not be required from the local cyclists who help in organising the ride and will cycle less than 3 days. They have to cover only the sleeping costs. The organizers will appreciate if local participants will purchase a package with ride symbols (T-shirts, flag and sticker).

The membership fee includes:


Additional paid service (optional):

– booked by registration


– booked during the ride:

Resignation rules. The date of resignation is fixed on when the resignation letter is received by organizers (before the ride by email, during the ride it should be delivered to the leaders of expedition and confirmed by them). The date is important, because resigning from the tour the participant receives his membership fee back in the following manner:
