Learning to lead mountain bike rides has just got more fun!

Fundamentals of MTB Leadership
09/06/2021 by

This brand new course is perfect for any leaders or volunteers that want to offer non-technical mountain bike rides.  What does that actually mean?  Well, think blue-graded trails at a mountain bike centre,  non-techical bridleways in your local area or even rides with a mixture of road and off-road terrain.

If you are a scout group, youth group, social cycling group, a teacher, a group of friends or even just a parent who wants to encourage their children to ride, then this course will give you the confidence and skills to plan and lead a great mountain bike ride.

This two day training (which includes continual assessment) is jam packed full of information including:-

  • Route planning
  • Basic navigation and route planning
  • Risk assessment and operational procedures
  • Ride preparation – what to take, what to consider
  • Basic trail side repairs
  • MTB games

It’s all very practical and designed to give you the knowledge to confidently lead on a route that you have pre-ridden.

We have several dates for this year, however they are filling up fast! For more information on the qualification then read all about it on the British Cycling website.

If you want to book, then our dates for 2021 are here.  Or if you are a group /club that want for us to run a bespoke course (up to 6 people), then drop us a email at hello@wyemtb.co.uk and we will get right back to you.
