Training Ride Forum Rules and Clarification


UPDATED:  March 25th 2013.

BEFORE you click through to the Training Ride Forum, read these clarifications closely and understand them. If you have any questions, please email the club and have the questions answered before attending any club rides .

There have been significant changes to the 2013 (and presumably beyond) liability insurance coverage provided by the ABA to it's registered teams, like Speed Theory Cycling. Training rides must be more controlled in terms of attendance and controlled in terms of notification of their existence to the ABA.

Just some cyclists getting together for a ride. Sounds good. This is what the Training Ride Forum is all about. Posting on the Training Ride Forum is to let other club members know when and where to be for a fun/training ride. All rides posted on the Training Ride Forum are NOT covered under the ABA's insurance provider. They are simply cyclists getting together for a ride.

Speed Theory Cycling (STC) has several ABA sanctioned training rides and events. These are Harley's Thursday night skills sessions, Harley's Sat and Sun morning group rides, Thomas and Marcy's Fat Tire Tues., the Wed night race series, Penticton May training camp, Oliver May training camp, and we have the ability to add more with correct notice to the ABA. Every other posted ride in the Training Ride Forum is not an 'official' in that it is not covered under the ABA's insurance provider. When Harley, Thomas, or Marcy post in the forum about any of the rides above, these will be sanctioned. Any other posted ride is NOT sanctioned.

So go ahead and post rides and show up to posted rides, just be clear that these rides are NOT covered under the ABA's club membership insurance policy. 

NOTE:  The Sat. 9am Wheelers ride:  This ride in it's definition by encouraging multiple club participation IS NOT covered in the slightest way through the ABA's insurance provider. The Wheelers Ride is simply a group of cyclists training. It is NOT a sanctioned club ride or a sanctioned activity through the ABA. DO NOT attend this ride if you want to be covered by the ABA's insurance provider while training. You WILL NOT be covered by the ABA's insurance provider when attending this ride.

I have read this statement in it's entirety and understand the terms of the Training Forum, by clicking through to view the Training Forum, I agree to these clarifications:
