As an OCC Member, I will:
1. Abide by all relevant traffic regulations whether on individual or group rides; respecting rules of the road and maintaining safe riding habits.
2. Assist any rider having mechanical or physical difficulties on OCC rides when they are unable to continue to ride safely.
3. Select the appropriate ride pace for my ability on OCC rides and ride within the advertised pace or relinquish this responsibility by informing the ride leader that I intend to ride at a faster or slower pace. I understand this will separate me from the club ride.
OCC members must be conscious of their role as ambassadors to the non-cycling and recreational cycling communities. The OCC logo, such as on apparel, is an advertising vehicle for the club. Failure to abide by bicycling 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 disciplinary action by the club which may include suspension of their club membership, or possibly having their membership revoked.
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.
OCC Membership is a privilege. Membership may be revoked, suspended, or denied.
