Cycling Ireland offers a diversified Coaching Education Programme across a number of different disciplines. 

  • q Ride Leader Award
    A

    Cycling Ireland Ride Leader Training will provide members of affiliated clubs or groups with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively lead and manage a group of cyclists on the road in club/group rides.

    The aim of the programme is to educate the ever-increasing number of Cycling Ireland affiliated clubs and members on the principles of group riding and managing a group of riders effectively and safely on the road.

    The course will explore the roles and responsibilities the Ride Leader will assume and prepare learners as Ride Leaders to provide safe and enjoyable cycling experiences for people of all levels of ability and age.

    Cycling Ireland Ride Leaders will attend a one-day assessed course which will qualify them to facilitate led rides for groups of cyclists. Ride Leaders will cycle a simulated club/group ride and practically apply techniques, skills and newly acquired knowledge covered in the classroom. Ride Leaders will be required to lead part of the pre-risk-assessed route.  Leaders will be assessed on their ability to lead.

    On completion of the course, the Ride Leader will be able to facilitate Club Ride(s) and/or Group Ride(s) and utilise a range of communication and leadership strategies to effectively lead a cycle.  

    The Ride Leader Award also complements and supports the Cycling Ireland Bike for Life and AXA Community Bike Rides Programme.
