Cycle Activity Leader has been designed for people wanting to introduce cycling activities for groups and users with additinal or specialist needs.   Course candidates will already be familiar with their audience, and understand their needs and aspirations.   The course outcomes align with Cycling Scotland's Cycle Ride Leader programme, and our course Tutors tailor the content of the course to support participants reach outcomes that are relevant for needs.

By the end of this course attendees will be able to:

  1. Identify the responsibilities of an Inclusive Cycle Activity Leader
  2. Perform cycle safety checks and assess participants abilities and needs
  3. Prepare for and lead a cycling activity for groups or individuals
  4. Perform dynamic risk assessment and complete activity planning cards
  5. Signpost participants to further opportunities

Cycle Activity Leader is not aimed at existing cycle trainers looking to introduce inclusive cycle training opportunities.  In this case Cycling Scotland recommended the UK Disability Inclusion Training or equivalent.
