Now you have completely misunderstood the nature of affiliated clubs . There is no requirement for riders to be a member of anything other than the affiliated club.
Quite possibly because it's horrendously unclear with affiliated clubs probably interpreting http://www.cyclinguk.org/sites/default/ ... ance_0.pdf in different ways. In short, when CUK's then membership manager asked at the CN/CUK campaigners' conference in Leicester why KLWNBUG isn't double-affiliated, I mentioned this restriction as one reason and wasn't corrected, but maybe not even he understood what he was selling. That insurance guidance also witters on about officers (which we don't have as such) and vaguely mentions obeying all CUK guidance without defining it and I'm not sure exactly what it means. Maybe it's a way to weasel out of any claims.
Like I wrote earlier, this is going to end in tears sooner or later: the wide range of interpretations can't all be correct.
I didn't find it unclear at all, but as it says in the first paragraph a full copy of the policy is available on request.
The important point is
Affiliated bodies (‘You’) may organise rides primarily for their members.
That's it, their members, not cycling UK members.
As for officers, it's just terminology, it'll include the person who's registered it and anyone organising or registered as a ride leader.
The guidance is covered in the ride leaders handbook, it's basic stuff.
The reality is it's all very simple, there's no need to make it complicated.
