Share the joy of bicycling
Become a 5BBC Leader
Do you enjoy interacting with people, exploring and creating new bike routes, promoting bicycling and do you want a great way to give back to the Club and the bicycling community? Then becoming a 5BBC Bike Leader is for you.
The 2014 5BBC Leadership Course will teach you how to organize and run both day and weekend trips. You will learn:
- map reading
- ride planning
- cycling safety
- group dynamics
- developing your leadership style
- many other skills that go into making yourself a leader
The course, taught by experienced 5BBC leaders, combines classroom instruction with practical riding experience. You do not have to be a strong or fast rider or bicycle repair guru to take the course. That is not what the course is about – it is about leadership. It is strongly recommended that you be able to ride for the better part of a day and be comfortable riding with a group. If you have not ridden with us before, you should definitely go on several 5BBC rides to become familiar with how typical Club rides take place. (If you are not a member of the 5BBC and wish to take the class, you must become a member.)
Classes will begin Wednesday, May 28, 2014 from 6:30 to 9:30pm and continue on 6/4, 6/11, 6/18 and 6/25 at Shapiro, Beilly & Aaronowitz Law Offices, 225 Broadway (13th floor) New York NY 10007. In addition to the above classes, there will be leadership training rides on 6/7, 6/14 and 6/21 and a weekend retreat from 6/27 to 6/29 in Columbia County, NY. To complete the course, leadership candidates must attend four of the five classes, two of the three day rides and the entire weekend retreat starting with transportation to Columbia County at 1pm on Friday, June 27 and ending Sunday evening, June 29.
