RFHavens 0 1182 Article rating: No rating

2018 Club General Liability Insurance is now available! New this year is the ability to submit the form and pay online.

As a USA Cycling registered club you have the opportunity to purchase liability insurance for your organization through our insurance program, providing a safety net for your team.

General liability, as well as directors and officers liability insurance, is offered at a competitive rate to member clubs. These policies cover the club during cycling related club activities such as meetings or non-sanctioned training rides, a great backup to have for teams of any size but especially for teams that are growing their memberships and hosting regular events.

Find out more, including application information, by going to our website. If you have any questions regarding the program feel free to email us. Insurance may not be a fun topic for most, but it plays a vital role in ensuring your club continues to focus on what matters most - riding bikes.

It is now time to renew your club for 2018!

We are opening club renewals now to allow your team to renew before your riders start purchasing their memberships. This means your riders will be able to continue listing your club on their license when they renew later this year and your club will continue to show up in the "Find a Club" search.

You can renew your club online through your USA Cycling account, by clicking on tools on the club page, or by submitting a paper application. Regardless of how you renew, doing so now will give you a head start on 2018!

2016 Policy and Fee Changes

A renewed focus on grassroots development and anti-doping

RFHavens 0 2603 Article rating: No rating

Since starting as CEO at USA Cycling this summer, I’ve received a lot of very helpful feedback from our members on a number of issues and areas of concern. As I’ve mentioned in past emails and blog entries, some of the top items that our membership feels most strongly about are anti-doping and an increased focus on amateur racing. As we move into the new year, these issues are at the forefront of our 2016 policy changes.

Through close collaboration with all constituents— from the positive and passionate to the frustrated— we've quickly built plans that start to show real change. I think we have found excellent ways to start to address these issues without putting an unreasonable cost onto our members, which was an important goal for us.

Highlighting the policy changes are: an increased Local Association rebate, which will put more money into the hands of those that manage amateur racing at the local level; a reduction in the one-day beginner license fee for road, track and cyclo-cross events from $15 to $10, thereby reducing a key barrier to entry; improved economics for mountain bike promoters, with a $5 rebate on one-day licenses, the elimination of permitting fees and the removal of the need for one-day licenses for practice days; and the addition of a RaceClean anti-doping surcharge to upper-category racers that will be used to significantly increase the number of anti-doping tests in the U.S. next year, particularly at the amateur level.

In 2015, Local Associations received a $10 rebate for each adult racing membership sold in their regions, which is intended to help grow and improve amateur racing on a local level. In 2016, Local Associations will still receive $10, plus $0.17 per competitive racer day, increasing grassroots funding by roughly 20 percent. Additionally, LAs will no longer be required to contribute to the USA Cycling RaceClean program, saving each LA up to $3,500 per year.

Membership fees for domestic racers will not increase, but a $5 RaceClean anti-doping surcharge will be added to Category 1 mountain bike, and Category 2 and 3 road, track and cyclo-cross memberships. A $25 RaceClean anti-doping surcharge will be added to pro mountain bike and Category 1 road, track and cyclo-cross memberships, and a $50 RaceClean anti-doping surcharge will be added to UCI pro road licenses.

Updates and Info

If you have any suggestions, please let Robert know. Try to be resonably specific if you can as it helps in the long run. Remember to update your links for the CCA Offcial website to carolinascycling.org. We have setup web forwarding from our old site address.

With the last update/rebuild of this site in early April, we are happy to report that the benefit of increased speed and response time for the pages to load is dramatically increased. Additional security measures were also put into place as we look ahead to future updates. 

We are constantly looking to make improvements to this website, from how we manage information dislay to maintenance. Now that the CCA Annual meeting is complete and the base calendar set, we are building the events calendar with many new features. We have all events from that list added. Some of the event info is basic until either the promoter provides it to me (Robert) or I pull it from the USA Cycling website once you start the permit process there. We do ask that you information always include the name and date(s) of your event. For the maps integration, we ask that you include an accurate address to the staging site or parking area for your event(s). Also new, is the ability for us to add some details to your event listing. This should be in plain text format and be reasonable length (i.e. not all the info from your flyer) but maybe some good info that is not on your flyer.
