The British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership training is an award for aspiring mountain bike leaders, enabling qualified leaders to use their experience to guide others on off-road terrain safely. The award is ideal for anyone with experience in mountain biking, who is either working in the outdoor sector, volunteering at a club or has a personal interest in gaining additional skills. These skills can be used to go out on a mountain bike, be safe and have fun.
We run courses throughout South Wales and the Forest of Dean. Upon completion you will have a consolidation period, to build up your experience and to complete your logbook. This is then followed by a one-day practical assessment. You will also have needed to gain an Outdoor First Aid qualification in order to gain a Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award.
The course covers topics such as planning and delivery of rides, leading techniques for effective group management, map reading and navigation, management of accidents and emergencies, equipment set-up, trailside repairs and core mountain bike techniques.
