Rhos on Sea Policy on club social/leisure rides

Rhos on Sea CC welcomes all members and guests to join us on our selection of rides. Members post rides each week on Facebook.

Riding in a group can be daunting for riders  unfamiliar with some of the basics of safe group riding.

Several Rhos members have been riding on club rides for many years and have considerable experience to help others and make the rides fun and sociable. New or less experienced riders will benefit from riding with regular riders.

Riding a cycle on public roads carries risks to the rider and other road users. Riders must follow the rules of the Highway code.

Ride Leaders

The club is affiliated to Cycling UK and as such, Ride Leaders are insured for third party liability on club rides. Individual riders are themselves to accept responsibility and it is highly recommended to insure themselves.
