Code of Conduct

Dusk image of sky and sea

At Julie’s Bicycle, we want you to get the most out of our events and the spaces we facilitate. Both offline and online, our spaces are ones where everyone should feel safe, welcomed and respected. We have a collective responsibility for each other, and to ourselves, to be mindful of our behaviour. 

By participating with Julie’s Bicycle or attending our events, you agree to:

Mind your language

Be considerate and treat one another with respect. This includes our use of language. Abusive, racist, sexist, ableist, ageist, misogynist, classist, sizeist, homophobic and transphobic language or any hate speech will be challenged. If you experience or witness this behaviour at a Julie’s Bicycle event please report it to a Julie’s Bicycle team member, either directly during the event or via


Respect the use of pronouns and avoid making assumptions. Ask people how they want to be addressed. 


Keep an open mind and be patient. Everyone has different life experiences and may be struggling with challenges that are not always visible. 

Look after one another

Be kind with your words. Allow space for others to share their thoughts. We encourage the practice of active listening when you are taking part in a discussion. We try to always have spaces for reflection and retreat during our events – please ask a JB team member if you’d like to know where / what this is.

Check your privilege

Be aware of the privileges you bring, and how this perpetuates oppression and discrimination. Think about how you are occupying this space, and the visible and invisible hierarchies that exist. 


Always seek consent and if someone says ‘no’ or asks you to stop something, then stop.

Personal boundaries

Don’t invade other people’s personal, emotional and social boundaries. Don’t assume others have the same physical and emotional boundaries as you. 

Ask permission to photograph

We often photograph and film during our events as part of the documentation process and we will let you know when this is happening so you can opt out. During large events with name badges, this will be marked on stickers / badges so it’s clearly identifiable.

Please do not photograph, broadcast, capture or record our events without consent of participants in the space. 

This is not an exhaustive list and if you have any suggestions for our Code of Conduct, please contact us via
