Members of the Bluelight Cycling Club will adhere to the four overarching principles of, fairness, inclusion, sportsmanship, and respect.
I promise to conduct myself in a respectable manner at all cycling and non-cycling events where I am representing the club. (“Representing the club” is anytime you are a registered member, at an event, and/or anytime you are wearing apparel that includes the club’s name and/or logo.) Inappropriate and unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated, this includes but is not limited to:
As a member of the Bluelight Cycling Club, I will:
Club members must be conscious of their role as ambassadors and how they conduct themselves to the non-cycling and recreational cycling communities. The club logo identifies members and should be used to always promote the club in a positive light. Failure to abide by traffic laws, if observed by the public can be extremely detrimental to the club’s image. Disciplinary actions may result in the revocation of all membership perks and/or privileges. All members demonstrating a manifest unwillingness to meet this Code of Conduct will be subject to suspension of club privileges or their club membership.
Ride participants under the age of sixteen may participate on club rides only if accompanied throughout the event by a parent or guardian who is a member of the club. Club membership is a privilege. Membership may be revoked, suspended, or denied; if after due consideration, the committee determines by 2/3 vote, that a member is in material violation of this Code of Conduct. The committee’s decision in discipline matter is final.
