Bicycle NSW wants to help the community through COVID-19Click For Resources

Unfortunately, the Ride Leader Course has been cancelled for March 2020. 

Do you:

  • love to ride your bike?
  • have intermediate to advanced riding skills?
  • have experience in riding with a group (as a participant)?
  • feel comfortable being a Leader?

If you answered 'yes' to these questions, then the Bicycle NSW 'Ride Leader Course' might be just what you are looking for!

This course, which consists of two components, will give its participants the knowledge and skills to plan, promote and lead safe, inclusive and enjoyable recreational bike rides.

The first part of the course is the planning of a ride (as you would as a Ride Leader). The second part is a one day 'hands on' course where you will be required to lead a short ride. Once you have satisfactorily completed both components, you will be accredited as a Bicycle NSW Ride Leader.

This course is delivered by experienced Bicycle NSW Master Ride Leaders.

Please be advised that both participants and volunteer Actors have to register online for this course (separately). This is different from previous courses. 

Next Course: August 2020

Stay tuned for more details shortly.

Volunteers Needed

Are you interested in the Ride Leader Course but you do not yet have the experience or ability to become a Ride Leader? Do you have a bike and are you able to ride at a leisurely pace for a few hours? Why not volunteer at our Ride Leader Course and get a good insight into what is required to become a Ride Leader?! 

At every course we need volunteers to be part of a riding group and help us 'test' the participants. As a volunteer (or 'actor') you will be asked to simulate a scenario that could happen on a bike ride (for instance a mechanical problem). We can't run this course without our volunteers and we are very grateful for their dedication. It is a fun day and we will reward you with a free lunch, coffee, tea and snacks.  

While volunteer actors do not pay a fee, we do require them to register online for this day.
