Club Organization - Plans for 2022
Hello fellow WBC riders,
It is time to get organized for the 2022 riding season! You may have heard from whispering fellow riders that there are changes ahead. It has been a tough couple of years but it's time to move forward!
The Westerville Bicycle Club has always been a community hub for Cyclists that just want to Ride!. The club will continue to thrive. We will continue to gather with our friends for rides which for so many of us have become an important part of our mental and physical health.
Over the last year, your leadership team has been having discussions on how to best support the membership in this endeavor. Some of the challenges revolve around availability of people and time to manage our current tech systems, processes, plans. At the same time we need to simplify processes, structures, and tools with the goal of creating a more seamless collaborative cycling community. As a club we need to continually evolve, find better communication tools, and make it easier to for the membership to stay involved.
I feel strongly that many of the tools that will best serve the WBC are already in our tool chest and it is time to make a change.
Now the big news!
With these changes the Membership fee for 2022 will be $0. That's right... Free! With this simplified structure and access to free tools, we plan to run the club with volunteers only. No cash. This is also an opportunity for you to lend a few hours to the cause. Whether it be organizing some rides, providing and publishing new routes, or electronically approving new member requests etc. We will still need your help.
Over the next month, we will be sending out communications from the RideWithGPS member site detailing how to get signed up to use the new/old ride tool set.
