Night Ride Leader

Designed entirely by Ian for Cycling Ireland, the Night Ride Leader module is a comprehensive CPD module considering all aspects of leading groups at night.


The onset of cheap LED technology has opened up night riding to all sorts of bikers and the popularity of guided night rides is rapidly increasing.  Unsurprisingly, leading groups in the dark has its own set of unique challenges that are explored during this highly practical course.  


The Cycling Ireland Night Ride Leader module is a bolt on that is available to all qualified Trail Cycle Leaders and Mountain Bike Leaders. Taking place over one full evening, the course is designed to be a sharing of experience and key learning amongst other guides and leaders. Fully certified by Cycling Ireland and Coaching Ireland, completing the module qualifies leaders to work with groups of up to eight riders within the remit of their current awards during night time conditions.


Looking specifically at the complexities of working in darkness, the module covers kit, repairs, planning and practical riding with the majority of the course spent on the trail experimenting with different approaches to common night riding issues.


Before Attending

You must be a qualified TCL or MBL and have your own set of lights that will survive a three hour ride.
