Club Social Rides

Paragraphs 4 and 6 of this next document should reassure social ride "organisers”, and remind club riders that all have a duty of care to each other – an ethos that is key to our Club. https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/zuvvi/media/bc_files/safeguarding/SG_2.7_Club_Rides_and_Criminal_Record_Checks.pdf

Children and vulnerable adults should be included in as many suitable club activities as possible, this may include riding with adults on club rides. They help make them feel part of the club and can really benefit their riding. Not doing so may lead to them dropping out of cycling to the detriment of the sport, the club and the rider.

Rides that may include children or vulnerable adults

Informal, casual rides will generally be open to anyone. Regardless of whether or not there is a person in charge of the ride all riders have a duty of care to each other.
