Very disappointed at the news- guess for me having raced motorcycles
From a very young age I was taught that any injury is simply a sporting incident.
Riders should sign a declaration simply stating that they are there of there own free will and if injury or death should and could occur no other rider or club shall be held accountable. I really don't see how it is possible to claim. Accidents happen, I know, I had severe spinal damage and have fully recovered. Moving forward I support the clubs decision to protect itself. It's sad and shouldn't need to. I'm not taking sides but pray that we do not become too afraid to ride, even on club runs, for fear of a claim being made. Cycling can be dangerous, accept that or take up golf. I was born on two wheels, dedicated and passionate and I feel the club is going to suffer. Keep up the good work & hope this situation is resolved swiftly. To the injured rider- take out your own injury policy if income needs to be protected. This is compulsary on international training camps. Vin
