Getting your Platinum Profile uploaded...

Step One: If you are a Gold Volunteer and have not yet recieved your Platinum Registration form, please contact Kelly at and we will send one out to you to complete.

Step Two: Send the completed registration form along with 3-5 photo's back to us and we will produce and upload your unique Platinum Profile (currently being re-developed).

Step Three: Get volunteering and blogging about your experiences. Record your activities on the Reflective Blog Templates provided in your development pack, or blog directly on our blog site. Each blog you send in will be recognised on your Platinum Profile on the British Cycling's website for all to view.

Blogs can be sent in various forms, can be uploaded directly and guidance of what to include is below.

Blogging about your experiences

In order to learn and develop from your experiences as Young Leaders in Cycling, we want you to reflectively blog about your volunteering. With a wide range of activities to get involved with in and around your cycling clubs, we want to hear about the different ways you have helped to develop cycling and what impact this is having in your local communities.

To help you to reflectively blog, you could consider answering the following questions whilst blogging:

1.    Describe what you did and what role you played.
2.    What went well, what do you think you could improve on?
3.    How did you feel it went? How did it affect others?
4.    What challenges did you face, how did you overcome these?
5.    What would you do differently next time?
6.    What one piece of advice would you give to other Young Volunteers wishing to get involved in this activity?
