NHCC Ride Leader Training starts next week

Thank you to all who signed up a couple of months ago to lead rides for the NHCC. The Training and Safety team has put together some training dates for you to choose from, to get you ready to roll. Think you might like to lead but missed signing up? It’s not too late. Just leave us a comment or shoot us an email and we’ll add you to the list.

Here’s what you need to know:

PART 1: NHCC Ride Leader Safety Training (Theory): Mandatory for ride leaders who have never taken either an NHCC Safety Training course or CanBike2. Optional (but recommended) for those with safety training but would like a refresher. We have two different evenings to pick from. (Bicycles not required).

Tuesday April 24, 6:30-8:30pm (Instructors: Maria and Geoffrey)
Wednesday April 25, 6:30-8:30pm (Instructors: Roberto and Anita)

Use the form below to let us know which date you can come, or just leave us a comment….that works too!

PART 2: Practical Group Ride: This important portion is for ALL ride leaders, even the most experienced. We will cover what needs to happen before, during and after a ride, Accident reporting, Ride levels and what to expect, just to name a few.

Date: Saturday May 5, 2018 10:00-11:30

    See you on April 24 and May 5

  2. Allan Dennis says:

    Hi Anita, please sign me up for a refresher on Wed 25 Apr. Unfortunately I am unable to make the 5 May as I shall be begining my trek across this great country of ours by train! Perhaps we could discuss another time and date so that I can get the latest info etc so I can continue as a ride leader. Thanks. Allan

    • Anita Macklin says:

      No problem about the 5th. There are others who won’t be able to make it either, so once we know all who are involved we’ll work on an alternative date for that group.

    Hi Anita, having gone through this course once am I required to complete it again?

    • Anita Macklin says:

      Hey Rich, it’s not a requirement if you’ve already taken it, but it’s a good idea to come out for a refresher! But we won’t make you! 🙂

  4. Pam Tate says:

    I can attend the Wednesday the 25th evening refresher course but am not available for the May 5th practical. Allan and I (and perhaps others) can coordinate to do that at a later date.

  5. Pam Tate says:

    Thank you for organizing this Anita!

  6. Raff Melito says:
