Starting a Club........, how to?(5 posts)

Starting a Club........, how to?jerzboy
Jun 19, 2002 9:09 AM
I need some help from other established club members/organizers.
I'm looking to start a local club. Right now we're aprx. 12 in number, who ride 3-4 times a week. We ride at a 21-22 average with distances between 30-60 miles, and plan to continue more of the same.
We'd like to start a club in name, logo, ride schedule, ....etc, but are unsure where to start. Do we just call ourselves a club? Are there legal issues with starting a club? Are there etiquette issues with using "velo" vs "cycle" in the club name?
Could it be as simple as, coining a club name, slapping the logo on our jersey, and riding?
Any help would go a long way.

If your planning on racing, I would recommend you visit There you will find all the requirements for a racing club.

If you only a recreational group, then I don't see a problem with having jerseys made or using velo vs. cycle Just develope a ride schedule and you might want to post it in a few shops in your area, that way the group may grow in numbers and fitness.

I hope it helps.
