The British Cycling Mountain Bike Leadership Award Level 1 is a one-day training course which includes an assessment of the following areas:

  • Essential leader equipment
  • Effective puncture repairs
  • Equipment set-up and safety checks
  • Fundamental mountain bike techniques
  • Bike games
  • Techniques for effective group management
  • Accident and emergency procedures

As it is a site-specific course, the centre’s existing procedures, such as Emergency Action Procedures, are incorporated into the training, which will give the leaders the skills necessary to operate in their specific environment.

The assessment for this course will be ongoing throughout the day, and upon successful completion of the required criteria, staff will be signed off by WyeMTB.

Level 1 MTB Leaders will be trained to a standard that enables them to lead introductory level mountain bike rides on limited pre-determined routes in a safe and enjoyable environment. This limits the level of route planning and navigation skills required by the individual and places greater emphasis on the centre’s standard operating procedures.
