Committee Meetings

Committee meetings usually take place every other month at 7 p.m. on a Thursday night at Worcester Motor Cycle Club. All club members are welcome to attend and contribute their thoughts or assistance.

Worcester Motor Cycle Club club is located at Tower Buildings, Perdiswell Park Golf Course, Worcester WR3 7NW.

You can also find the location on Google Maps and a map is also shown below.

Event Organising

The club always welcomes anyone who wishes to organise an event, whether it be one of the traditional events or something new. There are usually people in the club who can help, give advice or point you in the right direction. If you think the club should be doing something different let the committee know what you would like to organise.

There are normally sufficient funds available to underwrite or subsidise events that may make a loss. Organisers are encouraged to manage the finances of an event themselves and present the club with the profit or request a payment if a loss has been made. Assistance with large outlays before the event is normally approved by the committee.

Insurance

British Cycling and Cycling UK affiliation gives our club Public Liability Insurance up to £10,000,000 which insures the club and officials of the club against actions taken by non-members. It also covers individuals who have been invited to participate in club activities with a view to joining the club. Individual members are covered during BC registered events by their individual membership of BC or ‘day licence’.

Cycling Time Trials affiliation provide £10,000,000 indemnity insurance for event secretaries, timekeepers, marshals, observers and volunteer helpers on time trial events. It also insures riders against 3rd party claims during CTT registered events.

Most Home Insurance Policies contain Personal Liability Insurance and some of these include riding a bicycle, often with exclusions for racing.

Check your home insurance policy before spending money on separate third party cycling insurance.

Individual club members are NOT insured whilst not participating in races unless they hold individual British Cycling (silver or gold), Cycling UK or other cycle organisation membership that includes racing 3rd party insurance.

There is no legal requirement for cyclists to have insurance, and if you ride sensibly there is no reason for you to need 3rd party liability insurance. However if you cause an accident and injure a fellow club member or damage his bicycle you are personally liable unless you have insurance.

These notes are just for guidance, for full details read the CTT, Cycling UK or British Cycling handbooks or legal and insurance benefits leaflets.

The cheapest and possibly the best third party insurance for club rides, social rides and normal day to day riding can be obtained from Cycling UK and using the Worcester St Johns CC affiliated club code 90081985 see link below
