EOI – Cycle Skills Coaching course

If you enjoy riding with FIT, you might like to become a cycle skills coach! We are looking for new coaches  who can help set riders up for success, by teaching them the skills they need for safe riding. You do not need to be the fastest or have the fanciest bike, just a passion for sharing your skills and knowledge. Check out FIT’s coaching info here.
As per the FIT Coaching Policy , the commitment is about 12 hours per year. Cycle coaches are rostered on across the WTTP (Oct-Nov), Rookie Cycling (Feb-March), and the regular Friday Novice ride (Sept-April). All new coaches are buddied up with a more experienced coach.
We are still in the early stages of planning the 1-day course. If you are even just a little bit interested, fill out the survey and/or have a chat with Emma.
