Ride Leader Information

This page is for stuff that ride leaders need to get to quickly.


Incident Reporting

The ride leader decides which incidents should be reported, but it’s likely you will want to fill out the form where an incident that involves –

  • Emergency services
  • First Aid. A useful benchmark on whether to report or not, is the likelihood of additional medical treatment being required later. So a minor graze or cut isn’t reportable, but something that needs further medical intervention should be. If in doubt err on the side of caution and report.

Incidents should be recorded as soon as possible using the incident form, ideally within a couple of days. All ride leaders should have access details. If you are unable to recall please contact the webmaster ASAP.

Ride leaders guidelines

The following two pages are taken from the former CTCs website.  CyclingUK, as it now is, does not have the equivalent guides and all web links and telephone numbers therein are invalid.  However, the advice they contain is still relevant and valuable so we have continued to display them. The 3rd link is the current Cycling UK Guides which may be of interest.

For longer standing ride leaders, the rideline is no longer operational due to changes made by our provider, Sipgate. All cancellations need to be applied directly to the calendar by adding the words *CANCELLED* to the BEGINNING of the description – adding it to the end makes it difficult to see on a mobile device. Don’t just delete the ride entry as this can be confusing – far better to state that it’s cancelled.

First Aid and Training

Ride Leaders first aid packs are now held with Gray Brett. Requests for replacement supplies can be made via here.  A reminder if you have need to use items in the first aid kit then there should be a corresponding incident report completed. First Aid Training is not a requirement, but we recommend it.  Periodically First Aid Training courses are arranged, if you would like first aid training or a refresher then get in touch on our contact page

Google Calendar entry

Each Ride Leader should have received instructions about adding a ride to the Google Calendar.  If you have any problems, please contact Webmaster by e-mail. Detailed instructions are available from the Ride leader Co-ordinator. Please ensure you title the ride with the Classification first followed by the grading then any description i.e. Road 3C  Touring Hastings, MTB 2B Saltdean, Road 4D Intermediate Tunbridge Wells, MTB 3D Friston forest Single Track Ride or Road/Cycle path 2A Sunday Saunter.
