Recommended guidelines for nominating Lifetime Membership


Club Policy


Club Policy


NYCC strictly adheres to an anti-harassment policy with its membership, volunteers, guests, and event participants.

Our goal is to provide an environment free from tensions created by ethnic, racial, sexual or religious remarks, animosity, unwelcome sexual advances, or requests for sexual favors or other such conduct.

Harassment includes, without limitation, verbal harassment (epithets, derogatory statements, slurs), physical harassment (assault, physical interference with normal work or involvement), visual harassment (posters, cartoons, drawings), and innuendo.

Violation of this conduct may result in suspension or termination of membership privileges. 

Club and non-club Events

Non-cycling - Members are encouraged to propose non-cycling activities that they believe would be of interest to the membership.  At the same time, these are not susceptible to meaningful ride coordinator review and the Board does not view them as official or sponsored activities. Consequently, non-cycling activities will not be included in our ride listings, although the message board will be available to promote them.

Hybrid - Activities that combine a meaningful cycling component with another activity, will be considered “rides" and therefore eligible for inclusion in the ride listings, subject to normal ride coordinator review.

Both categories have been very popular in years past.  Their scope and variety -- skating, hiking, kayaking, movies -- are testimony to our creativity in finding new ways to interact with each other. The policy is not intended to discourage any particular class of activities, but rather to balance fairly the institutional needs of the Club with the needs and desires of interested members.

NYCC Message Board Policy

The sole purpose of this board is to foster dialog among those who share a love for cycling whether they are NYCC members or not.  Visitors are invited to express their thoughts, opinions, information, questions or whatever else is on their mind AS LONG AS IT IS CYCLING RELATED. 

We do not welcome and will remove any post that contains profanity, direct personal attacks or is in any way deemed offensive by the NYCC powers that be. 

Commercial posts are not permitted, however individuals may post items for sale or offers of bike related services in our Market Place

Informal rides may be posted, but in order to be considered an official NYCC ride, a ride listing must be submitted to and approved by a Ride Coordinator prior to the ride date. 

The views and opinions expressed in this forum do not necessarily represent those of the New York Cycle Club.
