Ride Leader Training
Our Bicycle NSW Ride Leaders course is an opportunity for our affiliated BUG’s (Bicycle user Groups) & their Bicycle NSW members to increase their level of knowledge and skills in leading rides. The course is targeted at recreational/social rides – if you’re looking to lead fast, large pack rides this is probably not the right course for you.
To be eligible, participants must be a current member of Bicycle NSW, and have had previous experience in group rides. BNSW provides first preference to members of our affiliated BUG’s, followed by general BNSW members. All participants must bring along a bike riding friend to be their “actor”.
To register your interest, email email@example.com with your Bicycle NSW membership number & your BUG name.
|Sunday 19th February 2017||8.00am – 2pm||Ride Leader Training and Assessment Course||Bicycle NSW Office, Bicentennial Park, Olympic Park NSW||$70 – covers all tuition, food and beverage for both yourself and your actor||Registrations Closed|
