Becoming A Ride Leader

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Bicycle NSW Master Ride Leader.

Your group’s rides give more people the opportunity to enjoy the fun and other benefits of bike riding. The Course gives you the process, the steps, and the resources for training new ride leaders. As a participating Master Ride Leader (MRL), you are the key to ensuring Bicycle NSW Ride Leaders are the right people, who have received the right training and experience necessary to equip them for leading a group of bicycle riders on public roads.

Bicycle NSW delegates to you the authority to assess ride leaders as competent and to accredit them when you are satisfied they have the skills and experience to lead a group of riders on a recreational ride.

If, at any time you have a question, a suggestion or other enquiry about the Course, please don’t hesitate to contact us
