FBA Ride Leader / Ride Marshal Program
Whether you are leading a community ride, a club ride or a major charity bicycling event over multiple days, FBA has the cycling education program for you. Our Ride Leader / Ride Marshal training and certification program is modular in approach to allow a Florida bicycle club and FBA member the opportunity to choose the modules that are most relevant for their needs and ride leader development.
