RL Training 3.16.24

03/16/2024 08:30 AM - 12:30 PM PT


Lake Padden


This is a 4-hour course at Lake Padden. If you have a current BICP Ride Leader certification you may opt out - however we highly recommend our WMBC-specific in-house training as well. If you stay current with volunteering for our programs, you will not need to attend another training for 4 years.


During this training you will become comfortable with leading WMBC group rides! You will learn strategies for getting to know your group; how to conduct safety checks on bikes and gear; how to teach and demonstrate fundamental bike skills; how to determine rider level and detect errors during a pre-ride assessment; how to prepare and implement emergency action plans; how to responsibly choose routes based on rider ability; how to safely ride in a group; what to carry in your pack; how to handle trailside emergencies - and more! Bring your bike and ome dressed for the weather. You will be on your bike at times but there will be a lot of standing and sitting. We look forward to a fun and productive session with you!
