CTC’s one-day Club Leader (CL) course is aimed at competent club cyclists to give them the tools to lead a club run in perfect confidence. The first tranche of courses takes place this weekend.

Triathlon England's AGM at Loughborough University will host one of CTC’s CL courses, and see senior Triathlon England managers put through their paces and learn how to set up, assess and manage a club ride from CTC Senior Cycle Training Officer Greg Woodford.

There will be other Club Leader courses this weekend for volunteer leaders taking place in Leicester, Hemel Hempstead  and Kent.

Triathlon England’s National Programme Manager, Stefan Pearce, said: “The training has been designed to free up our coaches from leading group rides in so much as our volunteer members can learn a set of skills to plan, lead, control and evaluate rides to make it more enjoyable and safe for the group."

As triathlon grows, we are finding more novice riders are daunted by open road cycling. Having leaders who have the appropriate training gives them some reassurance on these rides. "
