We know from the recent survey and speaking to club members that lots of you would like to have more regular club rides, which is fantastic (who doesn’t want to get out on their bike more?) In order for us to offer rides more regularly, on the same weekends each month, we need people to volunteer to be ride leaders. The more people who volunteer, the more club rides we can offer! The bike captains give you all the support you need and there is training available too.
From January 2022 we’d like to offer fortnightly club rides (on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month). We can only do this if we have at least 10 volunteer ride leaders. We’ve already had 5 people sign up so far, so this is looking hopeful :-)
On the 2nd Sunday of each month we will also offer a newbie ride - for those new to group riding or the club, or who simply want a shorter ride (this will be to Richmond Park or taking a train out to do a 40km~ loop).
From May 2022 in the summer season we’d like to offer club rides every Sunday. But we can only do this if we have 20 volunteer ride leaders. So if you want more club rides and you’ve done some group riding before, sign up to become a ride leader! It’s also a great way to give something back to the club.
What we’re looking for in a ride leader:
Everyone on the ride is responsible for their own bike and fixing their own punctures (although we always wait and help each other out).
What the bike captains will help you with:
There is also the option of going on a training course that the club will pay for, which is a fantastic opportunity, do say if you'd be interested in this. And you can co-lead with another person if you prefer, or for your first time.
Any questions, comment on here or ask Fran or Henry (your bike captains) on WhatsApp.
