Code of Conduct

"A man (and woman) needs a code"

          - Omar [from the wire]

Because we represent a great man and a great city, club members are required to follow the Philly MTCC Code of Conduct to be accepted and to maintain membership. Members not living up to the Code of Conduct may be expelled from the Club.

Code of Conduct

By becoming a member you agree to follow the Philly MTCC Code of Conduct when representing the Philadelphia Major Taylor Cycling Club (When you are wearing the kit or at a Club function). In general, you are expected to represent the spirit of Major Taylor and the City of Brotherly Love/Sisterly Affection. Members are encouraged to have fun, and avoid behaviors that may embarrass the club or jeopardize the club or its members.

Examples of unacceptable behavior include:

  • Poaching sponsored rides (MTCC Philly or any other group)
  • Littering
  • Engaging in illegal activities
  • Being discourteous to other cyclist
  • Openly disrespecting any club members based on ability, level, experience, race, age, sex, and sexual preference.

This applies when you are at a Club function or in Club gear. Major Taylor was an honorable man and we bear his name. Not following the Code of Conduct can lead to expulsion from the Club.
