Volunteer

Cycle Sisters’ Ride Leaders are the heart and soul of our Muslim women’s cycle groups.

 

Our volunteer Ride Leaders do so much more than just navigate on rides - they are cycling role models who inspire and support Muslim women to ride a bike.  Ride Leaders create a safe environment to help make cycling more accessible, enabling sisters to try cycling and have fun! 
 

Being a Ride Leader with Cycle Sisters is a great way to  develop your cycling skills, make new friends and be part of a growing network of Cycle Sisters volunteer Ride Leaders around London who help achieve life-changing outcomes for hundreds of Muslim women.

  • Good communication and teamwork skills
