Annual Notice to all correspondents
I wish to point out that we are not a cycling club but merely a group of cyclists who meet and cycle for leisure purposes. We do not carry indemnity insurance for our activities and therefore each person is responsible for their own activities on the road. It is, for this reason, it is recommended that each cyclist should purchase indemnity insurance from Cycling Ireland on an annual basis.
