The club promotes safe cycling.
Group rides have an element of risk. Each rider is responsible for his or her own safety. Each rider must consider the situation in which they are riding, including the other riders, the traffic and the roadway. We do not have a support vehicle on rides so it is up to the rider to do whatever is necessary to ensure his or her self-sufficiency.
Each ride has a designate ride leader who is responsible to control the ride.
If a rider decides to leave the ride he or she needs to advise the ride leader.
Cyclists are strongly encouraged to wear an approved helmet.
We encourage members to wear club jerseys when on a club ride.
Ontario only – (*) The OCA requires all club ride participants to be members of the club and have OCA Third Party Liability Insurance. Members of other clubs would have paid this fee in their home clubs and do not need to pay this OCA insurance to the Humming Birds International Cycle Club.
