Just a few notes’ from the weekend’s meeting in Dublin. Maybe also a few things that Andy may put on to the club site & facebook.
All clubs that hold any event be it open or club league must fill in a safety report & send a copy to cycling Ireland.
All events run on the highways open & club must be reported to the PSNI.
The police will also give the club’s a form to fill in and this could be used as the safety format and sent to CI
All marshals should know what there roll is and have the following, high vis vest, whistle & flags,
Course should be marked (watch marking the roads as you may get a fine from the DOE) and warning signs placed
