Tripleshot Code of Conduct

Post by mfarnham » Tue Jul 14, 2020 2:53 pm

Hi Folks,

Covid has had us all thinking hard about the health and welfare of people in our community. Thanks to all Tripleshot members who have embraced the new measures to keep us safe on our rides and keep us riding together.

Health and safety in Tripleshot go beyond Covid. We ride bikes and drink coffee together for our mental and physical health. And we take care of each other not just with leadouts and Americanos, but by providing safe rides and friendship in a space that is inclusive, respectful, and kind.

Floating in the ether (since the mid-2000s) are all kinds of expectations of how members should act and treat each other—captured in phrases like “The most important person on any ride is everyone else”, “Live to sprint another day”, and “Steady the *%# up!” Starting at the beginning of this year, the Executive held a series of discussions about these expectations and has decided to put some basic principles down on paper, in the form of a Tripleshot Code of Conduct.

This is useful for new members of the club who might assume that we’re just about drinking coffee, riding fast in circles, and Spond. But it’s also a good refresher for those of us who joined years ago, to think about the values of the club and the importance of things like inclusiveness, respect, safety, and personal integrity to who we are as individuals and as Tripleshot.

So please take a look: http://www.tripleshotcycling.com/club-i ... f-conduct/

Starting with membership registration next year, all new and returning members will be asked to sign the Code of Conduct, indicating that they agree to abide by these principles. Of course, everyone is already expected to abide by these principles. If you haven’t been, you are expected to do so effective immediately.

Thanks to members of the Tripleshot Executive and others who put their heads together to improve this document through several drafts. Special thanks to Heather Ranson, who took the lead in developing the document once the Exec decided to put pen to paper. And an especially special thanks to all the members who embody the values expressed in this document and who, by doing so, make Tripleshot awesome.

Keep safe.

Sincerely,
Martin

Lots of good stuff in there! :D Great work. It’s hard to get these things right.

e.g. I hope “Strive for personal athletic improvement...” encompasses maintaining personal athletic mediocrity and occasionally falling off the wagon entirely for a few weeks/months of overdoing the booze and Cheezies before grudgingly getting back on the horse.

Has the ethos of Tripleshot, which I admire, become a formality?

Hi Marcus;

Quite the opposite, in fact. Rather than being merely a formality - an implicit assumption upon joining the club - agreeing to the TSC ethos has now become a rock-solid requirement of anyone who wants to ride with us. As one of the most "Tripleshotty" club members ever, you're already well ahead of the curve. :wink:
