Are coaches paid?
No, coaches are volunteers. Each has his/her own personal reasons for volunteering, but mostly they are experienced cyclists who want to share their passion for cycling.
Can a coach be paired up with and accompany several Bikers?
Yes, however, we ask coaches to accompany one biker at a time. This ensures quality supervision. Once supervision is over, you can offer to supervise a new Biker.
How do I organise my journeys and schedules under supervision?
Directly with your buddy. As soon as your coaching request has been confirmed contact your buddy by email to exchange details, and decide on specific journeys and your three days of supervision.
Do coaches need to be trained?
Yes, all coaches receive free training. It provides them with the tools and methodology to coach and advise a Biker in road traffic. You’ll learn about your role as a Coach in a relaxed atmosphere through questions and answers. Training includes a theoretical and practical component. It lasts 2 1/2 hours. Bring your own bike!
Can I make a detour on the agreed route (to drop off my children, do shopping...)?
It's possible. You can negotiate this together with your coach. Bear in mind that the Coach has committed to accompanying you on the specific route you requested, so it's a matter of finding an agreement that works for both of you.
