Ride Leader Training

Ride Leader Training

Many organizations and charities run cycle rides for members of their community. This course will equip trainees with the skills to act as ride leaders and ensure that rides are a success

The course includes all key aspects of how to make rides successful, including:

  • choosing a good base location
  • what to consider when planning a ride
  • assessing client ability and health
  • matching bikes to clients
  • risk assessing routes
  • trail-side bike maintenance
  • managing emergencies

Candidates will be assessed through practical activities and through a written workbook.

This course can either be run from Cardiff Cycle Workshop , or, if you have a minimum of three trainees, we can come and train at a location of your choosing.

This course is an Agored Cymru Level 2 course.

“Great place to go to get yourself a bike. No need to spend hundreds just get one second hand. Good communication, they even adjust the seat and handlebars to suit your height etc. My partner is very pleased with her bike and it looks brand new! Highly recommended.”

“We visited today and picked a bike for my 6 year-old. He got to try it out and you fixed the brakes as they were a bit squeaky! Very covid safe! Excellent bike and my boy loves it. Great it has a 3-month warranty too!”

“Sustainability has worked with CTW successfully for a number of years, with sessions every month on Campus. They provide bike servicing for staff, students and the local community as part of our free Repair Café events. It’s a service to all to promote sustainable cycle travelling to Campus and the benefits of repair. They are so knowledgeable and as well as fixing on site they provide great friendly honest advice.”

“Came away a lot more confident with attempting to build a wheel. The course was run in a relaxed manner and no question was too much for Jon to answer. Look forward to my next course.”

I’d just like to say a massive ‘Thank You’ to the boys and girls at Cardiff Cycle workshop. They’ve done absolute wonders for my bike over the years! It’s was an old heavy Peugeot which I bought from new in about 1990. Although I used it regularly, it was getting too heavy for me, so the team changed the wheels for ones that were much lighter; put some super duper tyres on them, and on top of that, replaced the old hard saddle for a brand new very comfortable one. I make sure that I get my bike serviced regularly with them too. Such a friendly bunch too-always time for a chat. There is nothing they don’t know about bikes. Highly recommended!
