Becoming a Ride Leader

Sheffield CTC needs more members to lead rides. To ensure safe rides, ride leaders need to be experienced cyclists, used to riding in a group.

Ride Leader Criteria: Take a look to see if you fit the bill (click here).

Training: If you would like to train to become a local ride leader you can do this through the club. For more details please email

Mentors: To encourage and help new ride leaders on their first few rides we have a number of experienced leaders who will mentor you through the process (discuss the route and route description, help you on the day of the ride and provide feedback on how the ride went plus any other help you need). If you want to lead a ride you can contact a mentor from the list here to see if they are available to help.
