The Ride Leadership Award is for people who love cycling and want to share their passion with others.

British Cycling’s Ride Leadership Awards are perfect for confident cyclists who are enthusiastic about taking groups out on the road. We offer many courses to expand, train and develop leaders and our courses are great for recreational leaders, club cyclists, schools and leading businesses alike.

Since 2009 we have trained 6,000 Leaders and Champions who have guided 275,000 cyclists along amazing routes across the country.
