REMINDER: RIDE LEADER & MARSHALL TRAINING
Pete S writes:
This year's Free ride London is taking place on Saturday 3rd August and ahead of this LCC are offering us leader/marshal training on Saturday 20th July, details below.
It would be great to get as many people to attend as possible bearing in mind the growing numbers of all our rides and also to show LCC the strength of the club in depth.
Attending the training does not mean you have to marshal the Freeride (but it would be nice if you could). To get your name added to the list please reply to list admin or contact Pete S.
LCC is running a series of Ride Leader training sessions to support people who are interested in leading rides with their Local Groups, particularly the RideLondon FreeCycle feeder rides on Saturday 3 August, 2019.
Consisting of a short classroom session followed by a practical on-street session with an expert ride-leader trainer, the course teaches participants how to support groups of cyclists moving through roads with motor traffic.
Participation is free and the only requirements are being a confident rider and being able to bring a cycle in good working order on the day. We also encourage participants to brush up on their Cycle Skills before the course, preferably getting themselves up to Bikeability Level 3 or equivalent (information on free Cycle Skills training from local councils can be found here).
INSURANCE: THE IMPORTANT CODE
Hopefully the last couple of Bugle editions may have convinced you all that Third Party Insurance is more than a good idea, That other riders in the club may expect you to have it in case of an incident on a club ride to save any financial embarrassment in the event of a claim. George writes:
Only ride leaders and Anerley officers are covered against claims. It is therefore a good idea (imperative) that all in Anerley BC riders should cover themselves insurance-wise. As you are thinking of getting Third Party cover with CTC (you get a discount because of Anerley BC affiliation). CTC individual membership is normally £46.50 but because the club affiliation to CTC, you get a discount and pay £25 if you quote Anerley BC code for CTC which is 9101625.
JUSTICE FOR CYCLIST AT LAST
