Mickey Cranks Cycling Club Ethos
1 The Club
Mickey Cranks Ltd founded Mickey Cranks Cycling Club in September 2013, and due to its founding principles it has become one of the largest Cycling Clubs in the county if not the country. This has in turn led to the need for a more formal structure managed by a Working Group of volunteers. The intention of this document is to set out the foundations by which The Club will be run by its volunteers on behalf of its members. Mickey Cranks Cycling Club will hereafter be referred to as ‘The Club’ or ‘MCCC’. The Club will be affiliated to British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials.

• This Club is committed to ensuring that equity is incorporated across all aspects of its development. In doing so it acknowledges and adopts the following Sport England definition of sports equity:
Sports equity is about fairness in sport, equality of access, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them. It is about changing the culture and structure of sport to ensure it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society.
