Become a BCF Ride Leader.....

Post  Little Gav on 2009-06-05, 06:49

Dear Gavin Soden,

This summer British Cycling is teaming up with Sky, to develop a new and exciting recreational cycling programme that hopes to get more people out enjoying themselves on two wheels. This initiative is all part of our goal to get one million more people regularly out on their bikes by 2012. To help us with this we are looking to recruit and train new Ride Leaders to assist with the programme.

To become a Ride Leader you could be a qualified Coach, Bikeability Instructor or simply a member of your club with experience of leading within the club environment. As some of the rides will be on the public highway, riders should regularly ride on the road and be confident riding in traffic.

Ride Leaders can look forward to a free one-day training course prior to the event, where they will be given tips while we ensure that skills are in tip top condition and give pointers on how to lead the rides. They can also expect a branded jersey and payment for each event. If a Ride Leader is not already a British Cycling member, we will also give them a year's free Everyday Cycling membership!

Between July 1st and October 31st there will be a number of led rides taking place in London, Leicester, Manchester, Glasgow and Preston and the surrounding areas for riders of all abilities. Ride Leaders can play an important role in helping riders gain more confidence, whether they are a new rider in the park or an experienced rider looking to ride to work in traffic.

If this fantastic opportunity to become a Ride Leader sounds like something your club members would enjoy, we kindly urge you to direct them to the link below of to call 0161 274 2063 for further details.
