Thanks to all who volunteer to lead CIBA Rides. Scheduled rides are the most critical part of CIBA's success. Our members and prospective members count on them for enjoyment and fitness. 

There are two methods for becoming a confident Ride Leader. Ride Leader training classes offers information and interaction for questions and shared experiences with other ride leaders. The Ride Leader training classes are held at least once annually.

Another pathway is a one-on-one conference with a CIBA Ride Committee member for a discussion, to answer your questions and provide you with the confidence to organize a successful CIBA ride.

Persons interested to become a Ride Leader and to schedule a CIBA Ride event should contact the Ride Committee Chair at

Top Five Goals as a Ride Leader:

1. Plan a SAFE, enjoyable ride: the start location, the routes, and the SAG locations.

2. Paint "Dan Henrys" where needed to ensure riders follow the planned routes.

3. Prepare a complete and easy-to-read map, cue sheet, or both.

4. Plan your pre-ride instructions in advance to ensure that nothing important is left out.

5. Provide adequate SAG support for the ride
