The Bike Club Story

I’m going to tell you a story. No need for hot chocolate and a biscuit, this won’t take long, but of course, if you really want to, rock on.

Are you ready? Then we’ll begin….

Once upon a time, there was a bike club. A fairly well-organised bike club, with around 650 members, and run by a decent-sized committee.

They needed to prepare for a club event, but the committee member who generally dealt with the ‘bike show gubbins’ was holed up on the sofa due to illness, and, because the rest of the committee were so nice, they said:

‘No Jane – you’re absolutely not getting involved in this. You’re poorly, and even though this isn’t our job, and we’re a little out of our comfort zone, we’ll handle it@'.

She protested weakly, but sort of agreed.

What happened next?

Within 10 minutes, the previously out-of-their-comfort-zone committee members had organised a gazebo, bunting, balloons, and all manner of lovely stuff guaranteed to make their stand at the bike show really stand out.

They could do this because they were organised.


The treasurer (you might know her….) knew that there were funds in the bank for such an eventuality.

Another team member had kept good records, and knew where she’d sourced the fabulous bunting from previously, and re-ordered it.

A different team member had kept some balloons back from a different show, and packaged them up for postage.

The chairwoman, who was only a few minutes late to the party, wisely realised that the rest of the team had the whole kit and caboodle in hand, and left them to it.

The moral of the story?

  • Keep records.

  • Keep your numbers up to date.

  • Know what your strong point is.

  • Trust your team.

The rest will follow.


And if this level of sophistication is where you want to be, do yourself a favour.

  1. Buy a bike.

  2. Book a call.
