Important – Correction to details on Insurance Cover during ACC Rides
Please be informed that the details sent out to you with your last Membership should be corrected to read as follows:-
“ACC is an affiliated club with British Cycling. Via this affiliation British Cycling gives ACC the following insurance:
Third party (public) liability insurance indemnifies The Club and its officials against their legal liability for personal injury, death and/or property damage to a third party arising from their negligence.”
“Who is covered by the club insurance?
- the club;
- officials of the club who are acting on the club’s specific instructions; and
- individuals (non-club members) who have been invited to participate in club activities as invitees with a view to joining the club and are not already covered by any other insurance.
Are individuals participating in club activities insured by the club’s insurance?
No. All individual participants are strongly advised to become a Race Gold, Race Silver or Ride member of British Cycling which provides the benefit of individual third party (public) liability insurance. Contingent insurance cover is, however, provided to invitees who have been invited to participate in club activities with a genuine view to joining the club and are not already covered by any other insurance.
