Rides Co-ordinator [tasks can vary between Branches]

 

bullet

Contact current and prospective Ride Organisers (ROs) before the end of the current season to see whether they are willing to organise a ride in the next year.  If so, agree suitable dates.

bullet

Co-ordinate ride venues and dates for the forthcoming year and liaise between ROs, Branch Committee, neighbouring branches and Club Committee.

bullet

Support ROs, especially if they are new or inexperienced, and to liaise between them and the committee.

bullet

In Grampian Branch, request maps from those ROs whose rides use Forestry Commission Scotland land and submit applications for ALL such rides to FCS at least 6 weeks before the first of those rides.

bullet

Arrange to meet up with ROs in good time to support them if required.

bullet

Using the Ride Support Checklist (on the Members Intranet) make sure ROs have done everything they can to ensure safe and enjoyable rides for everyone.

bullet

Inform ROs about any Committee or Club decisions that affect the organisation of rides and the production of the talkrounds or maps.

bullet

You might be involved in any or all aspects of putting on a ride - course marking/demarking, getting permissions, completing Risk Assessments.

bullet

Discuss with ROs how many helpers might be needed, e.g. any checkpoints or road crossings, etc.

bullet

You are also responsible for organising the transportation arrangements of the caravan to and from venues.

 

Time involved - as much as you want, probably minimum 20-30 hours p.a. 'office time' depending on your broadband speed, powers of persuasion/nagging, computer skills, etc.  This will be mainly during the winter, plus any time 'on the ground' if necessary.

 

Skills required - map reading skills are useful/essential.  This would probably be a difficult job for someone without experience of organising a ride, but it is an interesting way of being involved.
