Description

What is Cycle Leader Award?Cycling Ireland Ride Leader Training will provide members of affiliated clubs or groups with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively lead and manage a group of cyclists on the road in club/group rides.

The aim of the programme is to educate the ever-increasing number of Cycling Ireland affiliated clubs and members on the principles of group riding and managing a group of riders effectively and safely on the road.

What will we learn?The course will explore the roles and responsibilities the Ride Leader will assume and prepare learners as Ride Leaders to provide safe and enjoyable cycling experiences for people of all levels of ability and age.

A one-day assessed course which will qualify you to facilitate led rides for groups of cyclists. You will cycle a simulated club/group ride and practically apply techniques, skills and newly acquired knowledge covered in the classroom. You will be required to lead part of the pre-risk-assessed route.

On completion of the course, the Ride Leader will be able to facilitate Club Ride(s) and/or Group Ride(s) and utilise a range of communication and leadership strategies to effectively lead a cycle.
