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.
