Become a British Cycling Ride Leader

Published Thursday 5 February 2015 at 13:31

British Cycling is on the hunt for new Rider Leaders to help inspire more people in Lancashire to get on their bikes and start cycling for fun.

If you love cycling recreationally and want to support others to get riding, you can become a British Cycling Ride Leader and lead group bike rides at locations across Lancashire.

British Cycling welcomes all kinds of cyclists – as long as you have heaps of enthusiasm and you’re happy to support beginner bike riders and families. There’s no need to be a cycling expert or competitive racer, just be confident riding in a group and have a good level of cycling fitness.

The free, assessed one-day course qualifies you to deliver guided bike rides for groups of beginner and intermediate level adults and accompanied children on roads and cycle paths.
