Cycle Activity Leader has been designed for people wanting to introduce cycling activities for groups and users with Additional Support Needs. Course candidates will already be familiar with their audience, and understand their needs and aspirations. Our course tutors will tailor the content of the course to support candidates reach outcomes that are relevant for their needs.

By the end of this course, candidates 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 recommends the UK Disability Inclusion Training or equivalent.
