Any input from members of active cycling clubs will be appreciated.
Long established road bike club, recreational and racing to a lesser extent. Got involved to help grow the club, but careful not to push long standing members away.
The way they roll is very informal, new members show up, route and distance is discussed by a few long standing members when they meet and off they go. Those who cannot hang in, are blown off the back in the first 5 minutes.
We are planning to put more structure in place, but careful not to scare the "old boys club" away. Structure means A,B,C groups, announced routes before ride, a talk before the ride etc.
How is this done in your club?
