Ride-Leader Training and Kickoff

Mary Kernan


If you’ve ever thought about leading a ride for CRW, now is your chance. On Saturday, April 11, 2020, we’ve got two great events scheduled. The first is Ride Leader Training. This is for anyone who has ever considered leading a ride, led a few and wants to learn more, or never went through training. We’ll cover topics such as:

  • What makes a good ride
  • How to plan a ride and the details you need to consider
  • What to do on the day of the ride
  • How to give a good ride description and safety talk
  • How to deal with common issues

Even better, come to Training with a ride in mind and we’ll help you work out the details and team you up with an experienced ride leader to make it happen.

Following Ride Leader Training is our annual Ride Leader Kickoff. This is a great chance to catch up with your ride leader friends or meet some new ones, learn about the programs planned for the upcoming season, make sure you get your choice dates on the rides calendar, find out what’s better than getting a neck gaiter and more!

Ride Leader Gift. Have you seen those cool CRW neck gaiters? Those were given to any leader who led or co-led a ride in 2019. We’ve got something even better planned for 2020, and it’ll be another ride-leader exclusive.

These events are open to any CRW member.
