Leadership Training

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 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
  • 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.)
