Cycle Sequatchie

Cycle Sequatchie was yesterday, Oct 1, and CBC was out in force, from the check in desk, to the rest stops, to being course marshals, to manning the CBC post ride table. The riders couldn’t say enough about the rest stops, and even though we had lots of bananas, apples, and other healthy stuff, they always went straight to the home made baked goods- which they absolutely loved. Thanks to all the bakers.

All in all, it was a great day, and I am deeply appreciative of all the volunteers that help make this year’s event a fun and successful one. As soon as I find out the date for next year’s event I will start to barrage you with emails again. Not really.

Thanks to everyone, especially to Shannon Burke who made it all work.

About: Insurance for CBC Rides and Events

The Chattanooga Bicycle Club purchases both General Liability and Participant Accident Coverage on an annual basis each year.

Volunteers and club members are covered when participating in club activities.

Non-members are covered during their FIRST club activity only.

Class 2 E-Bikes – those which can be throttle-controlled and do not require the operator to pedal – are excluded from coverage by our insurer, and thus are not permitted to be ridden on club rides. (Note that the presence of a Class 2 E-Bike invalidates our insurance for the entire activity, not just for that participant.)

Mountain bike rides are covered for members and first-time invited guests only. It is required that all participants wear helmets and sign a waiver, and the event includes no tricks or timing.

Racing events are NOT covered.

Participant Accident Coverage can help pay for medical expenses incurred due to injury sustained during a club organized and supervised event. Coverage extends to members and first-time invited guests.

Should an incident occur while you are involved in a club activity, please contact a club officer. Be prepared to provide as much information as possible including names of participants involved, date/time, location, injuries, property damage, etc.

What We Do

I was on a ride a few days ago and a friend asked me, “Other than rides, what does the bike club do?” After I told him all the activities we are involved in he said, “I had no idea.” Which tells me I’ve not done a very good job of letting you know all the good stuff your club is doing in the community.

Vision

It has been a tremendous pleasure and honor to have served as president of the bike club for the past two years. I have been nominated to be president for a third year, and the membership will vote on the nomination at the upcoming annual meeting. Prior to the vote, I think it would be helpful if I laid out my vision for the club for the upcoming year, because if the membership disagrees with the vision, it will be a very long and frustrating year for all of us. We can do great things as a group, but greatness is contingent upon being in agreement on what management and motivational guru Stephen Covey calls “the big things.”

Peggy’s Ride Safety Reminders

I just wanted to take a few minutes to drop some reminders for all of you, since the amount of rides and riders is picking up.  We’re all excited to get out there and enjoy riding our bikes, but we also have to be aware, courteous and safe.
First and foremost is safety.  We all know that, when riding in a group, it’s easy to become a lemming and just follow the person in front of us.  However, remember that you are an individual and responsible for yourself.  You need to make your own safety decisions.
