FFBC Secretary is the Insurance Company’s Contact Point
For accidents, the FFBC Secretary is the insurance company’s single point of contact and the Secretary may need to verify if the injured party qualifies for insurance coverage under the current insurance policy.
The two primary questions about insurance qualifications are …
- Is the injured party still a member (i.e., dues current)? The club Membership Coordinator (Membership) can verify status.
- If the injured party is a guest, is this the guest rider’s first ride with the club under the current insurance policy? The Pedal Pounder Manager (Pedal Pounders Coordinator) can verify status.
Note, more stringent restrictions for Mountain Bike rides apply. FFBC club insurance coverage is documented here.
