Hey All,

2015 BCC Framework

The BCC Difference

 

The club was established in 2007 with the sole purpose networking cyclists, establishing immediate camaraderie, facilitating a smooth assimilation into the club through a framework which empowers a cyclist (new or old) with fundamentals of group riding safety/skills.  This allows an individual cyclist to then focus on building their fitness, setting goals and achieving more then they originally thought possible. Since then, it has built a strong reputation for being safe on its rides and for having the level of camaraderie that all group settings should strive for.

 

Mantra:

  • Safety
  • High Level of Care
  • Inclusivity
  • Empower New Riders
  • Be Ambassadors of Cycling
  • Strive for Ride consistency in terms of Quality and Enjoyment
  • Have Fun.*

* Importantly, sometimes laying everything out on the road is part of the fun (i.e. the classic sprint points that our groups have already). For general ride fun and consistency, the type of ride structure discussed in this document is obviously important to consider as a ride marshal (especially for the beginner groups, where “laying it out” may not be possible right away), but the marshal should also mention that it is okay at certain points in a ride to “go for it” so long as people learn to regroup at the end of any “segment” and reformulate into a group for recovery together. There’s more to this, but I think you know what I’m getting at already.

Final Words

As marshals you should be able to exhibit all these qualities.  As ride leaders/marshals, we too, need to be able to enjoy our group rides.  If at any point in time you feel that you cannot maintain these standards, please pass on the responsibility to a fellow marshal and take time to reset.    This framework is designed to act as preventative maintenance for BCC Group rides.  Understanding the importance of these key points will ensure safe group riding and the overall enjoyment of every member in the club.  No matter the route or pace group, the level of care is the same amongst the riders of the group.  Consistency in all aspects leads to a well-respected group of cyclists and that is what the Riders of BCC are – Members of an Extremely Reputable Cycling Club in Canada.
