RFMBA encourages your leadership skills to ensure volunteers enjoy a quality experience, and help us make sure the work is done to the highest construction and safety standards. RFOV’s Crew Leader Training is taught by several RFOV Crew Leaders who have gained their experience through work with the Forest Service, BLM, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), and RFOV. They are eager to work with you, teach you the techniques, and share their knowledge and experience.
Many RFMBA members are trained as Crew Leaders through this program. If you’re a mountain biker, then come on out and make a difference!
Two Saturday/Sunday sessions are planned each project season. Each round of crew leader training includes a two-hour indoor class introducing the trainees to RFOV’s mission, goals and crew leader program; the season’s projects; how projects are run; leadership basics; and a technical preview.
During the field session, trainees practice their newly acquired crew leading skills and learn trail construction techniques.
