2nd Chance! Ride Leaders Training
If you’re interested in having you & your riders covered by COP’s robust insurance coverage, you’ll need to complete this training before we can list your ride/group on our calendar and provide coverage. COP is the only organization in the region that offers comprehensive insurance coverage for all weekly/recurring rides. We welcome your group (Leaders & riders) take advantage of this important protection.
Registration: Registration is free for COP members. $15 for non-members.
Instructors: Henrik Colijn & Gordon Renkes
Discussion will include the core deliverables for planning, mapping and leading a ride. Topics include basic bicycle safety check, rules of the road and Ohio traffic laws, sharing the road with motorists safely and courteously, and avoiding common conflicts. Basics of group riding for beginner to intermediate level cyclists, including importance of communication, use of hand signals, announcing road hazards and other courteous practices for group riding. We will review Outdoor Pursuits’ insurance liability coverage for our Leaders & riders.
This training is required for Outdoor Pursuits ride leaders. An “annual refresh” of this course for previous Ride Leaders is highly encouraged.
