Share the joy of bicycling
Become a 5BBC Leader
Do you enjoy interacting with people, exploring and creating new bike routes, promoting bicycling to all levels of riders and want a great way to give back to the Club and the bicycling community? Then becoming a 5BBC Bike Leader is for you.
The 2013 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, decision-making and develop your leadership style, as well as many other aspects that go into making you a bike 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. (Note: If you are not a member of the 5BBC and wish to take the class, you must become a member prior to the weekend trip part of the course.)
Classes will begin Tuesday, September 3, 2013 and continue on 9/10, 9/17, 9/24 and 10/1 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 9/15, 9/21 and 9/28 and a weekend retreat from 10/4 to 10/6 in Columbia County, NY.
