The Committee has decided to proceed with an initial Group Leader Course which will be undertaken on some safe public/private roads and is aimed at those cyclists who would like to develop the skills and knowledge needed to organise, lead and review a Group Ride. The club has always struggled to get the number of ride leaders we need and yet this is the most popular part of the club! It is a bit like the chicken and egg scenario, if people were more confident about ride leading then they would lead more rides…but in order to be confident then… Anyway, we are going to try and break this closed loop by offering the opportunity to sign up for a one day course which will include some group riding, writing a risk assessment and operating procedures…and exploring different Leading styles, incident management skills and all the other good stuff. The event will be organised by qualified instructors and a certificate will be issued along with a card recognising achievement. If you are interested then please either let Robin know directly or use the club contact page to get in touch with Simon (Road Captain) or Ed (MTB Captain).
