Ride Leader & Tail Ender training

May 11 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We learned a lot from the two Ride Leader & Tail-Ender training sessions held in 2023 – the key takeaway that all participants on a group ride benefit from understanding the various guidelines (such as limiting the number of riders to 16, and having a structured pre-ride briefing) which we have in place. Last year we opened RL&TE training session to all Members & Associates, with the aim that eventually all Members will have attended, reducing the number of problems which arise on rides, and making our outings safer, more accessible & a better experience for all

Our first RL&TE training session of 2024 will be held at Over Community Centre on Saturday 11th May

Who can attend? All Members & Associates are welcome (but Associates must have begun Observed Rides and their Observer confirmed that their riding is at a suitable standard)

What’s involved?

The day starts at 10am and is expected to end by 4pm. The day begins in the seminar room with Module 1, which is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation and lasts around 90 minutes. A break follows with tea, coffee & biscuits. Module 2 presentation follows, lasting roughly 30 minutes

After a break for lunch (please bring your own sandwiches), we move onto the practical, on-road session – so it’s essential that attendees arrive by bike. Although not essential, preferably attendees will be equipped with a SatNav. Current members of the RL&TE team as well as potential new recruits will have the opportunity to brief riders before heading a 20-mile ride where they will have be able to ride in both the Lead & Tail positions. There will be a Q&A back in the seminar room to close the session.


In summary: whether you’re an experienced member of the RL&TE team, looking to join, or would simply like to better help make our Group rides safer & more enjoyable, please support our RL&TE team by requesting a place on Saturday 11th May by clicking here now
