• Are you interested in Volunteering as a Ride Leader

    Spend a couple of days training as a Ride Leader for the Big Birmingham Bikes project and if you successfully complete the course you can help deliver Led Rides across the city in some of our most beautiful parks, alongside rivers, and canals.
    They will also offer all ride leaders a free One Day Emergency First Aid at Work course.
    The first course will be held on Sunday 25th January and Saturday 31st January, but if you can’t make these please still apply as we will have more courses later in the year.
    The course is a mixture of classroom based learning and practical activities.
    The venue for the classroom session will be at the SUSTRANS office in Digbeth.  The venue for the practical session will be at Wyndley Leisure Centre in Sutton Coldfield.
    Applicants need to be 18 years of age or over, and be competent in riding a bike.  Working with adults and families, this course is suitable for keen and enthusiastic cyclists or people who want to contribute to their local community.
    This course is free of charge. In return, you will then be required to deliver a number of rides with them over the next 12 months as part of this exciting city wide initiative.
    You will be helping to shape and build the brand new Big Birmingham Bikes programme which is a pioneering project to enable our communities to cycle.
