TfGM is offering people across Greater Manchester the opportunity to undertake FREE ride leader training.
This course may be of interest to people (aged 16+) involved with youth or community groups, cycle champions at workplaces looking to encourage colleagues to cycle to work, or club riders wishing to gain insight into leading rides.

Subjects covered include:
- Route planning
- Risk assessments
- Bicycle checks & helmet fitting
