The practical assessment consists of an all-day mountain bike journey during which each candidate will be assigned to lead a section of the route of up to 10km. You will be expected to deliver a flowing journey while demonstrating good leadership and navigational skills.
The assessment procedure is informal and is designed to help you develop your skills as a mountain bike leader. The group you lead can consist of other riders who are also being assessed on the same day or riders who are there to fulfil the role as participants on the ride.
If two people want to book a specific date which doesn’t appear on our list, please contact us, and we try and arrange to meet your requirements.
The written assignment is an open book home study task and comprises of a range of short answer questions. This task is based on the information included in the British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Handbook and other resources provided on the course.
Once payment has been received for your assessment place, the assessment questionnaire will be sent to you via e-mail (paper copies are available upon request) and should be returned to your course provider no later than seven days before your practical assessment date. Please ensure you allow plenty of time to complete and return the questionnaire before your assessment day.
