We have around 10 potential new ride leaders who can attend this workshop, as well as a number of existing active ride leaders. The plan is to meet at the Spring, Havant, at the usual time to set off at 9.15 and ride to an elevenses stop, provisionally, and to be confirmed, as Goodwood.

Happy to add to the numbers with anyone else who feels they could contribute to the workshop or has an interest in ride leadership.

Please let me know if you haven't yet responded to the initial email, but you do plan to attend.

The venue for the Ride Leader Workshop is confirmed as Goodwood.

One thought on “Ride leader workshop

  1. Our list of registered ride leaders is lengthy but there is a shortage of those coming forward to lead rides - I do think it would be useful for the committee to poll the ride leaders as to why they are not leading rides. Knowing this may be useful in sorting out the shortages?

    I'll kick off why I no longer lead rides:
    1. One of the joys of being retired is having the flexibility to do 'things' at the drop of a hat - do I want to commit to ride leading upto 3 months ahead?
    2. The Wed rides attract large numbers - too large for my own level of comfort I'm afaid, to say nothing of finding a suitable 11's venue.
    3. I rarely ride from Havant with a Wed/Sat group, preferring instead to meet the group at the 11's stop where the onward rider numbers are less.
    4. Ride etiquette - the lack of etiquette leaves me feeling nervous at times, nervous at the impatience this can cause other road users and the knock-on effects to other riders in the group and their safety.

    I don't have a ready solution to the above but I will endevour to come along to the Ride Leader workshop on the 24th Jan to join in any debate to be had.

    With my best wishes, AlanM
