Sweden by Bikes guide pool

Demand for bicycle guides is increasing in Sweden. With a safe and knowledgeable guide who can frame the experience through his story, the bike ride becomes even more rewarding for the visitor.  

Today there is no certified training for bicycle guides in Sweden, but we offer a basic education for those who want to develop as a bicycle guide and get an orientation in important, basic knowledge. It can be a great way to get into the nearby nature in small groups. We do not know exactly what situation we have this summer when it comes to covid-19. Of course, our attitude is that everyone, cyclist or not, should follow the recommendations of the Public Health Authority. 

Those who have completed the basic education will receive a course certificate and have the opportunity to be included in Sweden by Bike's guide pool.

Are you interested? Now we open up for booking online education in two steps. The training takes place in collaboration with Bike in Bergslagen and Wonder Work. Welcome to contact us by email to katarina@swedenbybike.com if you are interested we will send more information. Max per 10 participants per occasion.

Bicycle guide is a responsible assignment that sets high knowledge requirements. The course is based on solid personal experience of leading groups as a cycling guide for both those who are going to cycle on busy roads and in mountain bike contexts. It is about how to practice hosting, what not to do, what equipment is needed. Group cycling also involves risks that need to be assessed correctly and knowledge is needed on how to handle the situation if someone is injured as to which first-aid equipment you should bring on the trip. It's about controlling your own and the customer's equipment. The course also gives the participant knowledge about how to handle a group of cyclists at different knowledge levels and physical capacity.

Two educational opportunities

The online course consists of two occasions. The first occasion consists of a theory-oriented lesson. The second means that the participant's home task is followed up and expanded to a functioning format.
