Course description

This course has been designed to cater for a cyclist wishing to hold the British Cycling Ride Leader Award.

“Those ride creators who have attended a Ride Leadership course are required to hold a valid emergency first aid certificate so that they are insured to lead rides using British Cycling’s Insurance for Coaches, Leaders and Instructors. This can be completed before or after the course though we recommend completing it before you attend the Ride Leadership Award so that, on completion of the course, you can begin leading right away”.
