We try to have at least one nominated Ride Leader for each of our Monday and Wednesday evening training rides.
There are no specific requirements or skills needed to be a Ride Leader, you just need to pick the route and organise the group that assemble at the beginning and ensure that we split in to suitably sized groups at the start.
If you're down to be a Ride Leader then it generally also makes sense to post in the Facebook group early in the day to remind people that the ride is on (some level of encouragement often helps too, "...weather is looking good...", etc).
If you don't see a Ride Leader on a particular day, it doesn't mean that there is no ride, if you're planning to go out then send a message to the Facebook group; who knows, you could be the Ride Leader if you wanted!
If you would like to be a Ride Leader then please get in touch so we can add you to the list of people with appropriate permissions to update the list to the right. Note that you don't need to make any long term commitments. If you can only lead the odd evening ride here and there, that is a great help.
