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 through the county.

British Cycling welcomes all kinds of cyclists – as long as you have heaps of enthusiasm and you are happy to support beginner bike riders and families. There is 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.

There is a British Cycling Ride Leadership Course on Saturday, February 14th, at Marsden Heights Community College on Edge End Lane, Nelson.

After completing the course, Ride Leaders will receive free kit and British Cycling Ride membership.
