UCS Instructor Recruits Needed

As you probably know, Bike Calgary piloted a 1-day Urban Cycling Skills course last year, in partnership with MEC.  It was a great success, and we're going to offer the course again, and hope to expand the program in the future both by offering more sessions to more people, but also, possibly by taking the courses to employers or out into communities.

For this reason, we're hoping to recruit a few more volunteer instructors.  To teach the UCS course, you'll have to be an accredited CAN-BIKE instructor, and the first step in that process is to take the CAN-BIKE II course offered this month and again in June. Part of the accreditation process would be to assist with the delivery of UCS courses later in the Summer. (There is a modest honorarium available for that: $50 per course.)

So if you're interested: Step 1: Sign up for CAN-BIKE II. Step 2: Email [email protected] and let us know you're interested.
