BC Mountain Bike Coach & Commissaire Courses Announced

January 29, 2006 – Cycling BC is pleased to announce the following Mountain Bike Technical Courses. To register on-line, visit http://www.karelo.com and click on the ‘event list’ link found at the top left of the page. Courses are listed by month.

Club Participation: In coming seasons, Cycling BC will offer incentives for affiliated clubs to send members to Commissaire and Coaching courses. Cycling Clubs provide much of the volunteer and resource base necessary to develop the sport, it is important that each club have trained, knowledgeable members – these members are typically race coaches and commissaires. We ask each affiliated club to send at least 1 member to a technical course in the 2006 season.

Cycling BC can make arrangements to hold courses at the request of groups in any part of the province. If you are interested in having a course in your area, please contact Kevin MacCuish, Mountain Bike Manager in order to make arrangements.
