Where do my subs go?

Ribble Valley CRC is affiliated to British Cycling, CTC, Cycling Time Trials, North Lancashire Time Trials Association and Lancs & Lakes SPOCO time trials. These affiliations give the club third party insurance to cover all our activities and allow us to have a say in the way cycling is organised and promoted nationally. They also enable club members to take part in competitions organised by these bodies.

Ribble Valley offers a social meeting every 2nd Monday in the month, with talks or events. The club pays to hire the club room and refreshments are also provided by the club (tea, coffee, biscuits and a buffet supper when there is a talk).

All club events are subsidised, to make them cheaper and more accessible for all our members.

These includes:

  • Christmas “Mince pie ride”,
  • The Good Friday “Hot cross bun ride”
  • Trophies and awards given at the dinner are all paid for out of club funds.
  • Any club member riding a time trial promoted by the club, such as the “Hilly 19”
  • Additionally there are some administrative costs such as stationery, postage etc.

At the end of the financial year, the treasurer of the club provides a financial report, which is available to all members.  This report shows the club’s spending and cost etc.

Thanks for your continued support.
