Benefits of SMW Membership
- SMW is a member of the League of American Bicyclists (LAB), an organization which promotes cycling for fun, fitness, and transportation through advocacy and education. As a member of LAB, we participate in their insurance benefits program. Every member of the Smoky Mountain Wheelmen Bicycle Club who has 1) paid their annual dues and 2) submitted their annual signed club waiver form receives general liability and participant accident medical coverage when they participate in a club organized event, or ride lead by an SMW Ride Leader. Club rides are posted on the club calendar and approved by the Ride Captain or Assistant.
- Rides labeled “shop rides” and rides posted on the Smoky Mountain Wheelmen website as “other rides”, “social rides” or Facebook page are provided as a community service and are not covered under the club’s insurance policy
