Pedal Power ACT requires all ride leaders to be accredited and financial members of Pedal Power ACT. This is to assist with ensuring ride leaders are competent, having well run cycle rides, and to mitigate risk (to Pedal Power ACT, the ride leader and ride leader assistants).

 Ride leader assessment procedure

  • The candidate ride leader advises Pedal Power that they would like to be accredited.
  •  Ride Leader Registrar liaises with the candidate ride leader.
  • The candidate reads and understands the current Pedal Power ACT requirements and guidance for conducting rides (as give on this website)
  • The candidate ride leader understand the current Pedal Power ACT accident insurance cover (as give on this website)
  • The candidate ride leader understands the Pedal Power ACT requirements for handling incidents during a cycle ride (as give on this website)
  • The candidate ride leader, under guidance of an accredited ride leader, leads and/or assists in leading at least three Pedal Power ACT cycle rides. This requirement can be wavered for a candidate ride leader who has previously led numerous cycle rides.
  • When the candidate ride leader wants to be accredited, they advise the Ride Leader Registrar and nominate a date to lead a cycle ride for the purposes of checking.
  • The Ride Leader Registrar finds two assessors (accredited ride leaders) and apprises them of the candidate ride leader and the details of the proposed accreditation cycle ride.
  • The assessors assess the candidate ride leader in accordance with the Pedal Power ACT ride leader assessment procedure (as given below).
  • The assessors advise the candidate ride leader and the Ride Leader Registrar on the outcome of the assessment.
  • If acceptable, the assessors recommend accreditation of the candidate ride leader as a Pedal Power ACT ride leader.
  • The Ride Leader Registrar adds the accredited ride leader to the list of accredited ride leaders (give below).
  • It the assessors recommend against accreditation of the candidate ride leader, then the Ride Leader Registrar discusses with the candidate the reasons why they were not recommended, and the need for more experience before another assessment.

The re-assessment process checks that the ride leader, as outlined in the Ride Leader Re-assessment Form:

If the re-assessment shows that the ride leader should be re-accreditation as a Pedal Power ACT ride leader, then the Ride Leader Registrar extends the ride leader’s accreditation for a further three years on the list of accredited ride leaders.
