Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to be certified? No. Our Touring VP will work with you on how to correctly put on a ride. Use the LBC Ride Captain Guidelines as a tool to assist you with the correct way to do this. 

How long after I join the Louisville Bicycle Club can I become a ride captain? Immediately. Our Touring VP can assist you with getting started. 

Is there a minimum number of rides I need to put on in a year to maintain my ride captain status? Only if you want to receive a ride captain jersey. You must lead 5 rides in order to receive a ride captain jersey (while supplies last).  

Do I need to put on a weekly ride or can I spread them out as I would like? Feel free to put on the amount of rides you feel comfortable.  Obviously consistency is key to driving the popularity of your ride. A red jersey is awarded to first time Ride Captains after they captain five (5) rides in that touring year, while the supply of jerseys last. Ride Captains that captain at least ten (10) rides for the touring year will be recognized by receiving an award, e.g.,water bottle, gloves, or an award of similar value.
