Legally Speaking For Cyclists
by Sariol Legal

Cycling has grown in popularity over the last few years. Not only is it great fitness, but it’s also cost-effective means of travel. While many cities in California have gone to great lengths to ensure cyclists are kept safe, accidents still happen. Many victims involved aren’t sure where to turn for help. We answered some of the most common questions asked of cycling lawyers to help shed some light on the subject.

·    Adult Annual Membership - $50
·    Adult One-day Membership - $15
·    Youth (age 17 and under) Annual Membership - $10
Athletes may only pick up their own packets. Under no circumstances may an athlete pick up a packet for another person. All relay members must be present to receive the packet, or split up the relay packet for each participant.
All athletes are required to show a   photo ID.  NO ID, NO RACE, NO EXCEPTIONS . Every single participant, including relay participants, must have a photo ID. Youth athletes without an ID must be accompanied by a parent/guardian with a photo ID. Annual members are required to show their membership card every time they compete in a USAT sanctioned event.
If an athlete does not bring a photo ID to packet pickup there are   two options:
  • Go home to get it
  • Have someone email/fax them a copy of their photo ID

If an athlete does not bring a USAT membership card to packet pickup there are four options:
  • Find internet access where a temporary card can be printed at
  • Go home to get it
  • Purchase a one-day membership which can later be applied to a membership renewal by submitting a receipt of purchase
  • Use the USAT Card App available for download through the App Store and Google Play store

Athletes that need to purchase a one-day license must sign the USAT waiver if it was not included with the event registration process. Annual members do not have to sign a waiver at packet pickup because they signed it when they applied to become an annual member.
