Practical assessment

The practical assessment consists of an all-day mountain bike journey during which each candidate will be assigned to lead a section of the assessment route of up to 10km working with a ratio of 1:4. You will be expected to deliver a flowing journey whilst 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 and/ or riders who are there, simply to fulfil the role as participants on the ride.

If there are 2 people wanting to book a specific date which doesnt appear on our list please email and we try and arrange to meet your requirements.

Written assignment

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.

Please ensure you allow plenty of time to complete and return the questionnaire before your assessment day.

    Fantastic lesson with Gareth and Seth on FOD Flow – The Next Step course. Clear instructions delivered in a very friendly, enjoyable and professional way which has in the space of under 3 hours improved my mountain biking immensely. So much so I went back after lunch for a quick red run and then went round and round the the pump track and tabletops I’d previously been so scared of until my legs gave out. Thanks chaps, and I’ll be back for the next course after a heavy dose of practice. You really have given me a new set of skills, pointers and boost in confidence to tackle trails afresh with enjoyment.
