Brereton Wheelers use a number of different social media platforms for different purposes within the club. Below we have documented how we use each platform.
Spond is used for listing all the rides available within the Club. As well as official updates from the Club.
We DO NOT use Spond for chat, posts or polls. Please use WhatsApp or the Facebook Group for this.
Riders will find that on all events the comment function is disabled. If they need to ask the host of the ride a question this is permitted within Spond but they will have to scroll to the bottom of the event listing and click on ‘SEND MESSAGE TO HOST’
Instagram is used for general ride photos that are uploaded by Ride Leaders or the designated social media member.
This platform provides current photos on the club website which is automatically updated every 2 hours using a specific hashtag that is given to the ride leaders.
WhatsApp is for club members to share cycling specific chat and photos.
Please ensure all your posts are relevant to the club and the general chat of the group.

Facebook or Meta as it is now known is our public profile allowing us to promote the club to non members.
FACEBOOK PAGE – Open to everyone
We use this to promote up and coming rides, what the club is doing and offers to members. Posting is generally for admins to promote the club.
FACEBOOK GROUP – Members Only
This group is for members only to share their ride stories, photos and general banter. keep it clean as you will be removed without warning for inappropriate posts. As long as it is cycling related then it is a good post.
We upload ride videos to YouTube and these are used on the Facebook page to promote the club.
Everyone is encouraged to create videos if they wish. So if you are a budding film creator send your creations to the Chairman or Vice Chairman for consideration to be added to our YouTube channel.
