INCIDENT REPORTING - Introduction and Guidelines

Incident Report Introduction:

The Rochester Bicycling Club would like your help in collecting information regarding Incidents which occur during Club Rides and Events.   The data we collect will help us to identify issues for our Safety Committee to address.   If you have experienced or witnessed a Cycling Incident on a Club ride or Club sponsored cycling event, your completion of an Incident Report is important to our continued effort to promote rider safety.  The more complete information you provide about your incident, the better we will be able to identify and target areas for safety education.   Incidents are not limited to events that result in injury.   For the purpose of this reporting form Incidents would include, but are not limited to falls, crashes, close calls, traffic conflict, and unsafe actions.
