10 September - FREE ride leader workshop


Cycling with others is lots of fun and you can lead the way by attending one of Cycling UK’s free on-road Ride Leader workshops.

Free Ride Leader Workshop, Essex Business School: University of Essex Colchester Campus, 9.30am-3.30pm, Saturday 10 September 2016

Cycling with others is lots of fun and you can lead the way by attending one of Cycling UK’s free on-road Ride Leader workshops. To ensure they get more people in the saddle and cycling, a stipulation of this free Ride Leader workshop is that participants must lead one Cycling UK Big Bike Revival led ride in their local area, for local cyclists, at a pace and on a route that the Ride Leader chooses during the weeks of 15-30 October 2016.

"Learn and Lead" takes confident cyclists through the necessary steps to lead a ride in their local area in their own way, benefiting from the advice and input of fellow Ride Leaders and workshop facilitators to think through the practical and bureaucratic measures involved.  Experienced Ride Leaders: we would like you to pass on your knowledge, whilst learning tips and ideas from others.

What you will take away from the day:

  • Increased confidence in leading a group ride
  • Ride Leader workshop pack and essential documentation
  • Cycling UK Ride Leader workshop certificate
  • Cycling UK goodie bag
  • Lunch and refreshments

If you are interested in taking part in the one-day Ride Leader Workshop please register your interest NOW.

'Getting the bus is causing me big problems, but cycling is good. Going to work by bus I’m sitting down for an hour and a half and I’d have to take painkillers before going to work, but not when I’m cycling.'
