What's Involved?

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.

Forms and Information for Ride Leaders

Cue Sheets for Ride Leaders

The club has an excellent library of cue sheets available online (you must be a club member to access the cue sheet library). 

Procedures for rides

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.

In the event of an accident, ride leaders must complete the Accident Report Form and mail it to as soon as is possible. WCC keeps a record of the forms and also submits them to our insurance company.

All completed sign-up sheets should be sent to the address posted on the bottom of the sign-up sheets.
