If you are thinking about volunteering to be a ride leader, contact one of the ride lieutenants listed below or Rides Chair who can authorize you to use the Ride Leader Functions of MyBTCNJ.
Ride leaders plan and lead rides. You can choose a ride to lead from the Cue Sheet library or you can write your own. For more info, take a look at the Ride Leader checklist.
- Release Form (
the sign-in sheet)
- Accident Report Form (to be used to report accidents which occur on a club ride)
- Bicycling Street Smarts: Riding Confidently, Legally and Safely
The club has an excellent library of cue sheets available online (you must be a club member to access the cue sheet library).
Ride leaders are responsible for bringing these essential forms to each ride they lead: the Release Form (sign-in sheet), the Minor Release Form and the Accident Report Form.
Ride leaders must insure that every rider has read and signed the release waiver prior to starting the ride. Ride leaders can obtain additional forms by downloading the pdf files (above) and printing them out on their home computer, or by request from Rides Chair.
In the event of an accident, ride leaders must complete the Accident Report Form and mail it to Franklin B. Wimer, Treasurer, as soon as is possible. Franklin B. keeps a record of the forms and also submits them to our insurance company.
All completed sign-up sheets should be sent to Incentives. The address is posted on the bottom of all sign-up sheets.
In addition to that warm fuzzy feeling you'll get after leading a ride, the club also offers material incentives.
