Sociable leisure rides for enthusiastic cyclists
You may have heard about the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) that comes into force on 25th May 2018. At Corallian, we have looked at our obligations, and the good news is there's nothing too onerous - in fact this message forms part of our obligation.
Fundamentally, we only hold data about you that is necessary to run the club, and we are permitted under GDPR to hold this information. This means membership data (so we know who our members are), and what rides you've been on (so we can share ride experiences and build a history of club statistics).
We store your name, date of membership expiry, email address and for some people who have volunteered it, a mobile number. You control for yourselves whether you opt in to the Facebook and Strava groups, and are at liberty to remove yourselves from those whenever you wish.
If you don't want to be identifiable in ride statistics, we are happy to change your name details in the database to show only your initials. We are also happy to remove contact details if you do not want to be contactable - just let us know!

We're planning a weekend to Lincolnshire to explore this interesting county of contrasting hills and flat lands.
Our base will be Woodhall Spa, a small town at the southern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds around 15 miles from Lincoln. The town has a Camping and Caravanning Club Site and several guest houses and hotels.
Riders are responsible for arranging their own travel and accommodation but car sharing with other riders would be possible.
You can arrive Friday evening for a meal and socialising before the riding or be at the start point at 8.50am on Saturday morning for the first ride.
There are rides planned for Saturday and Sunday (see separate calendar entries). The Sunday ride should finish shortly after lunch to give plenty of time for the return journey.
An exploratory ride of the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Heading north on the outskirts of the Wolds to Caistor for lunch and then through the heart of the AONB following the LEL 2017 route to Louth for refreshments and Horncastle.
The route is 116km and lumpy but only comes in around one times hilly. We will take our time to enjoy the countryside.
An easy ride (if the wind is favourable!) to the coast.
Heading pretty much due east for a mostly very flat ride to Skegness. We turn north along the coast road to Sutton-on-Sea where we will take refreshments.
We then head back to base via the southern tip of the Wolds and Horncastle.
Although this ride comes in at 111km it is mostly flat and we should finish shortly after lunch for the journey home.
First Sunday – An all-day ride starting from Wantage. The ride will be Blue or Red grade and include lunch and maybe other refreshment stops - expect to be be back by 17:30 (or 30 minutes before sunset during winter months).9:16 pm
