To keep our rides going we need trained and certified ride leaders. Bicycle NSW runs a few courses every year, subject to getting the numbers and also their own staff and volunteer resources - it's quite a big day out at Homebush Bay.
Anyone interested in becoming a ride leader should contact me or Bob Dunn. You will need to be a Bicycle NSw member and a Bike Leichhardt member, and you also need a "helper" on the day. This is someone who acts as part of a test ride group that the aspiring ride leader has to take around a course, where various situations can arise, like what do you do if someone is injured or can't continue etc. We can hopefully provide the helper, so if interested in doing that job you can also please let me know.
We pay the cost of the course and as an incentive we will pay 30 % of your next BNSW membership bill(subject to passing the course!).
Edit in Feb 2017: the Feb course is full, next course is likely to be in Aug 2017.
