RPV Terms & Conditions of Membership

  1. You will follow and observe the Club Ride Rules which are hereby expressly incorporated in these terms and conditions.
  1. You will use your real name and surname when applying to become a member of the club and inform the Organiser of any change in your name.
  1. By applying to join the club you give your consent to your name, surname and email being used in connection with club matters. You can withdraw this consent at any time after the termination of your membership (whether by resignation, expulsion or failure to renew).
  1. Your first year of membership lasts for 12 months from the date of payment of your membership fees or the date of the first club event you attend (whichever is the earlier). Membership renewals run from the day after the expiry of the preceding year’s membership.
  1. You must pay your membership fees promptly upon the expiration of any year of membership.
  1. Membership fees are non-returnable except by way of a goodwill gesture made at the Organiser’s absolute discretion.

  1. You will not hold the Organiser responsible for any matter arising from an event organised by any Assistant Organiser.
  1. You must behave appropriately on club rides and social events and not do anything to bring the club into disrepute. In particular, you must not use abusive or threatening language or hand gestures to drivers, cyclists, pedestrians or other members of the public.
  1. You must not harass, bully or act in a discriminatory fashion towards any club member.
  1. You must not gatecrash an event which is already full. Ride numbers are limited for a reason – the safety and enjoyment of the group.

  1. If you are unable to attend a club event which you have previously indicated your intention to attend, you must your RSVP as soon as possible to allow another member to attend in your place. Failure to do so could result in your being refused participation and/or placed on the waiting list in relation to future events.

If you cease to be a member of the club (whether by resignation, expulsion or failure to renew), you will cease to represent yourself as being a member of the club and, in particular, will desist from wearing the club kit. You will enter into bona fide negotiations with the Organiser for the sale of your kit. Any price offered by the Organiser will take into account the age and condition of your kit.
  1. Any breach of these terms and conditions can lead to your expulsion from the club.
