Join us at 9:30 AM for Coffee, Tea and goodies provided by Vancouver Area
Cycling Coalition volunteers. Remember to bring your bike and helmet. There'
s lots of free parking for those arriving by car.

The morning session will be indoors from 10:00 AM until Noon. After lunch we
'll go outdoors to practice new knowledge and skills. We've assembled some
volunteer cyclists and experts to help you practice leading a group or
answer your individual questions. We'll wrap up around 2:00 PM and make sure
we have time to address individual concerns.

A 24 page Ride Leader Handbook is included with the workshop and a
Certificate of Participation will be presented to you upon completion. We
