Bike Winnipeg: Ride Marshal Training Course

May 27, 2023 @ 1:00 pm 2:30 pm

Bike Winnipeg Ride Marshal Training helps create safer group rides for everyone! This course is for those interested in supporting medium to large groups of all ages and abilities. If you are an experienced cyclist this is a great way to get involved in our efforts to get more people biking more often. Although this training is useful for anyone running group rides, those attending are expected to volunteer to marshal with Bike Winnipeg at least twice this summer. There is no cost for this course.

Areas covered include:

  • Keeping people safe on group rides
  • Ensuring rides stay on course
  • Keeping people together & keeping rides on pace
  • Communicating stops, turns, and hazards
  • Corking – holding traffic while a ride passes through intersections
  • Pre-ride bike checks

1st Session
When: Saturday,  May 27th 1:00 – 2:30 pm
Where: Sport 4 Life Centre, 145 Pacific Ave

2nd Session
When: Monday,  June 28th 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
