Ride Leader Training Webinars

Are you a member looking to give back to your club and take on an important leadership role? Is your club struggling to get Ride Leaders trained for this season? 

If you answered yes to either of these questions, consider being trained as a Ride Leader and taking on this valuable and important role in ensuring organized activities at your club continue to take place and grow.


Ride Leaders play a vital role in the sport’s success in the province. They pave the way for safe, well-run activities, that encourage members to keep returning. The more Ride Leaders that are trained, the more cycling activities a club may offer, including specialized rides and fun events. As the number of cyclists in the province continues to grow, it is imperative that more Ride Leaders are trained to be able to keep up with the growing activity demand. 

If your club does not have its own Ride Leader Training in place (or you simply want a training
refresher), consider signing up for one of the three Ride Leader Training webinar dates offered by Ontario Cycling.

Hosted by Amy White (Volunteer with London Centennial Wheelers & NCCP Trained Coach with Attack Racing), this one-hour webinar will provide attendees a strong understanding on a number of important Ride Leading topics including:

  • Why is it important to have Ride Leaders?
  • What is the role of the Ride Leader before, during, and after the ride?
  • What are some of the “What if” items a Ride Leader may come across when leading a ride?

After the webinar, attendees should feel more comfortable going back to their club and trial running a ride as a Ride Leader. 

Webinar Dates:
June 20 @ 7:30pm – FULLY BOOKED
July 09 @ 12:00pm – FULLY BOOKED

If your club provides its own training (off-bike or on-bike), you may be required to take that training before being put into a Ride Leader situation. 

For any questions, please contact OC Club Relations & Membership Manager Chris Baskys.
