Cycle Sisters Ride Leader Application Form
Cycle Sisters, an award-winning Muslim women's cycling organisation, is looking for sisters to train as volunteer Ride Leaders to support our weekend rides in either Hackney, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest or Newham and play a part as role models and community champions.  

The volunteer Ride Leaders will help run weekend rides for one of our existing groups (usually the borough you live in or are closest to). Hackney and Waltham Forest run rides on SATURDAY MORNINGS and Newham and Tower Hamlets on SUNDAY MORNINGS.  Rides usually start around 9.30am and last for a duration of 2-3 hours (including a social stop).  

This is an exciting opportunity to develop your cycling skills as well as share your passion for cycling with other Muslim women. You don't need to be an expert cyclist, just confident at cycling on the roads and comfortable up to a distance of 10 miles.  You'll receive free training and ongoing support and development in the role. 

Please make sure you've read the information about being a Ride Leader in this document before applying:

Applicants would need to be able to commit to leading 2 rides per month for at least one year from one of the start points (see below). You'll also need to be able to attend the training elements which involves some online modules and a 1 day Ride Leader course and 1 day first aid course (if not already a first aid certificate holder) in February or March and an optional 1 day bike maintenance course to be organised at a later date.

As part of the recruitment process you will first undertake a free level 3 cycling lesson with a local instructor at a time convenient to you and then have an informal chat with a member of the Cycle Sisters team.

Please note that you must be able to attend the training courses outlined to be eligible for this programme. We do not yet have firm dates but will consult with you if selected to try to find dates suitable for all.

The deadline for completing this application form is Wednesday 5th January.
