Overview of Insurance for WCC Members
The following summarizes the insurance coverage provided with a Whistler Cycling Club membership. Our insurance arrangement is direct to insurer rather than as an affiliate to a provincial or national cycling organization.
A WCC Membership provides two types of insurance: SPORT ACCIDENT INSURANCE and LIABILITY INSURANCE.
SPORT ACCIDENT INSURANCE provides reimbursement of medical and treatment costs and compensation for personal injury and losses suffered while participating in a sanctioned club ride. This coverage is in effect only for rides in Canada and for Canadian citizens with provincial government health care.
LIABILITY INSURANCE provides legal and financial protection against claims brought against the club or a club member for losses or damages suffered in relation to a sanctioned club activity.
• Club insurance will be in effect only during WCC sanctioned rides or events. To be sanctioned, a ride must be pre-scheduled on the WCC calendar and overseen by a WCC ride leader. Note that in some cases an event or ride appearing on the club calendar may be unsanctioned, with club insurance not in effect.
• To be insured, each participant must have a Full Membership, or have a Single Ride Membership that is valid for the date of a given club sanctioned ride (with waiver signed and corresponding fee paid). An Associate Membership provides no insurance.
• Each participant must wear a helmet while riding in a sanctioned club ride.
