Learn to Group Ride Orientation and Ride Leaders Meeting – Wed April 26th

Learn to Group Ride Orientation (LTGR) and the Ride Leaders Meeting are sure signs of spring!  You don’t need to be a WCC member to join these meetings, so if you have friends that want to learn more about the WCC then this is a great opportunity.





Learn to Group Ride (LTGR)

What: Everything you need to know about the LTGR program.
When: Wednesday April 26th 7pm to 8pm
Where: Waterloo Rec Centre – Front Half of Hauser Haus

Special Bonus – As part of the LTGR Orientation our good friend Tim Gale from Velofix will be hosting a Tire Change seminar so you can ask questions and improve at this important maintenance skill.











Ride Leaders Meeting

What: Updates on being a ride leader and discussion on how the WCC can grow the ride leader program
When: Wednesday April 26th 8pm to 9pm
Where: Waterloo Rec Centre – Front Half of Hauser Haus

Ride Leaders are essential to the success of WCC rides.  The WCC is looking for help from our members to grow the ride leader program, which means members identifying that they are interested in being rides leaders and helping us understand how the ride leader program can be better.

The majority of our time in the Ride Leaders Meeting will be discussing how we can make this a better program for all.

    Is the ride leader meeting directed at Road Riding or is this relevant for Mountain Bike and CX / Gravel Grinder leaders too?

    Great question Bill!

    The Ride Leader meeting is for all ride leaders. We’re looking forward to hearing what’s working and what can be improved across ride leading within all of our ride types.

    One thing I’m curious to hear discussion on is Ride Organizing/Coordinating versus being a Ride Leader for a group.

    Hey! I’m interested in the Learn to Group Ride course. Do people need to attend the orientation to participate?

  4. JasonPollard

    Hi Gwyneth,

    We strongly recommend the orientation, but it is not a requirement.

    Is there a cost involved with the LTGR course if your a WCC member ?

    • JasonPollard

      No cost beyond a membership!

      The program is led by Craig McDonald and a great group of club volunteers who offer their time to teach group riding skills and show how inclusive, safe and social group riding can be.

    Hoping this question isn’t too late, but is there any value to coming me if I arrive late? I probably can’t make it much sooner than 7:30pm. I was hoping to attend the full hour.
