Starting April 1st!
Ride leaders are the HEART of HBC. We are a cycling club and our main function is to RIDE. Leaders put in much time and planning when volunteering to lead a ride, plus they do it over and over again. We also ask our leaders to attend an HBC training which is essential to ensure consistency in ride protocol.
Leaders need to be aware about what is expected when leading a ride, safety guidelines, what to look out for when leading a group, policies of the club, trouble shooting, club insurance, biker bucks, etc. We expect a lot from our ride leaders because they determine the safety and enjoy ability of our HBC rides.
As a thank you to our ride leaders HBC offers an HBC ride leader jersey when a trained leader leads 10 rides with submitted ride reports. This program has now been expanded and starting April 1st, now includes HBC embroidered thank you gifts when leaders have led 25, 50, 100 and 150 rides.
