Do you love cycling, and are you passionate about getting your local community out on their bikes?

British Cycling’s Recreation Education awards are perfect for confident recreational cyclists who are enthusiastic and supportive about taking groups out on the road. We offer many courses to expand, train and develop our legion of Ride Leaders and Breeze Champions, including:

  • Ride Leadership Award Level 1
  • Ride Leadership Award Level 2
  • CPD for Leaders & Champions

Our minimum requirement is that you complete the Ride Leadership Award first before attending any of our other courses.

If you live in a local authority area that is a partner with British Cycling, all courses are free at the point of use. However, if you do not live in one of our local authority partnership areas, all courses are available to purchase as part of our public offer. Please email recreation@britishcycling.org.uk if you are an individual, club, business, school or any other organisation and would like more information on how our education programmes could work for you.

Our guided rides programme, established in 2009, continues to go from strength to strength and we have now trained 5,000 Leaders and Champions who have guided 235,000 recreational cyclists along amazing routes across the country.

Come and join the team and play your part in helping Great Britain become a true cycling nation!
