London Dynamo is committed to ensuring the cycling-related welfare of its members. It aims to be a welcoming and inclusive club where all members feel happy to participate in all our activities regardless of gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, race or age. In particular, we consider the welfare of our under-18 riders to be paramount (standard checks are required for members in junior-related roles).

The club is run entirely by volunteers so members are strongly encouraged to take a proactive role in respect of any welfare-related matters. You can contact our Welfare Officer in confidence with any concerns.

Welfare-related issues include:

  • Sexism
  • Racism
  • Bullying
  • Mental health problems
  • Discrimination (religion, race, sexuality, disability or otherwise)
  • Inappropriate sexual attention (whether towards a junior or adult member)

The club’s Welfare Officer is Kenny Clarke who can be contacted via kenny.clarke@londondynamo.co.uk. Alternatively, you can contact our chairman Alex Bastin (alexander.bastin@londondynamo.co.uk) or British Cycling (compliance@britishcycling.org.uk, tel 0161 274 2082 or out of hours 0161 274 2002).

Anti-doping

As a club affiliated to British Cycling, London Dynamo is subject to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s rules and regulations. This means that all members are subject to testing for prohibited substances and performance-enhancing drugs, whether they race or not.

Members should familiarise themselves with the WADA Code and UK Anti-Doping. Members are also strongly encouraged to use the Global Drug Registry to check all medicines (either note the reference number of your search or take a screenshot) and the Informed Sport website to check batch-tested supplements (again, you must keep a record of your search).

The club has a zero-tolerance approach to doping but we are committed to assisting members with doping-related issues. We have a number of UK Anti-Doping accredited advisers who can be contacted in strict confidence. Their names and email addresses are listed below.
