Individual, family and temporary members receive the following member benefits:
1. Insurance Coverage
The Club purchases General Liability, Accident Medical, and Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance to protect the Club and members for potential liability claims, and limited medical coverage for its members. Coverage applies to numerous club sponsored activities. For medical coverage to apply during group rides you must be a member of the club ( except first time riders), and register on-line of by signing a release form, both of which contain the waiver of liability agreement.
Accident Medical Insurance: $10,000 per person per accident excess of a $500 deductible and excess of any other valid and collectible insurance.
Accidental Death of Dismemberment: $5,000 per person per accident.
CRASHES should be reported immediately at which time an incident report will be prepared and submitted to the insurance company. Crashes should be reported to the Ride Leader.
In the event of any actual or alleged claim for any crash or incident, the actual terms and conditions of the insurance policy will apply.
2. Special Members Offers
Our corporate members sometimes offer exclusive benefits to Vero Cycling members. For example, Orchid Island Bikes and Kayaks offers Vero Cycling members a 10% discount on all purchases.
3. Access to Club Email System
Most club activities, including rides and other club events, are announced through Vero Cycling's private email system. Being a member allows you to receive those emails.
4. Full Access of the Club's Website
Some pages on the club's website have restricted access (e.g., the full ride schedule and the member forums). Club members have full access to those pages.
5. Invitations to Member-Only Programs, Social Events & Workshops
Members receive periodic invitations to member-only programs, social events and workshops held throughout the year.
5. Safety training and helmet fitting classes
Members may participate in any safety classes offered.
6. Support for Cycling in Our Community
In addition to sponsoring group rides, Vero Cycling serves as an advocate for cyclists in the Indian River County area. We work with local government and community organizations to promote cycling and the development of cycling friendly infrastructure (e.g., bike lanes, trails, etc.) in our community.
