New edition of Bike North Rides Policies & Procedures

The third edition of the Rides Procedures and Policies and been produced and endorsed. The document covers the principles underpinning the whole rides program, and includes updates the rides committee or exec committee have operationalised in the past 4 years.

It focuses on aspects that make up regular, diverse and safe rides program offered to members and the community, rather than how individual rides are to be run (covered in Bike North Rides Protocols document). It predominantly documents processes used by the rides coordinator, the rides committee members and ride leaders and will accessible to ride leaders through their logon to the website.

Many of the updates reflect the significant additional functionality in the Bike North Website for ride leaders, and rides committee/ coordinators. For example Bike North did not routinely use Ride with GPS at the time of the previous 2016 edition. Part of the document’s ‘look’ has taken the recommendations of the recently developed Bike North styleguide.
