-Problems with our membership as by examining other clubs. An add will be placed in the Newshopper and visits to schools with posters.
Club Runs -Been quiet in the last few weeks.
-Questions from other club members based on insurance for club and individual riders. BC have a 3rd party insurance for BC members. So it is advised that all members have a minimum of a BC membership or CTT membership so that they have 3rd party insurance.
-Riders should have at least one working brake (for fixed wheel bike) and must be of road worthy condition. Unfortunately, this was not met by a member who had no brakes. As a result of this some members did not feel safe and removed themselves from the ride.
-The website should address this problem as a legal requirement.
-Proposed that club runs to be classified into groups – proposed that there is a race group, an intermediate and a slow (casual group).
-There should also be leaders for each group with discipline from the riders, e.g. do not overtake unless given permission.
-Routes to be specified as hilly/flat so riders can pick best ride suitable for them. These can change weekly so each group has a range.
Any other business -Group on WhatsApp to recentralise back to email for any important information discussed. Link on website for general WhatsApp chat but one for the race group chat to be added.
-Kit hopefully ready for next month.
Date of next meeting -7th April
