Content

Action plan, safety and preparation - cycling guide is a responsible assignment that sets high knowledge requirements. The course is based on solid personal experiences of leading groups as a cycling guide both for those who will cycle on busy roads and in mountain bike contexts. It's about how to exercise hospitality, what you absolutely should not do, what equipment is needed.

Group cycling also involves risks that must be assessed correctly and knowledge is needed on how to handle the situation if someone is injured. Therefore, we go through what first aid equipment you should bring on the trip. During this step, we focus on preparation, safety checks and thinking like a pilot. Concrete checklists are included in the course material for you who want to prepare professionally and we go through everything from mailing to customers to action plans if the accident occurs.
