British Cycling Level 2 MTB Leadership Award

British Cycling Level 2 MTB Leadership Award



The practical assessment consists of a full day mountain bike journey shared with other candidates and your tutor. During the ride each candidate will be assigned to lead their own section.You will be expected to provide a flowing journey whilst demonstrating good leadership and navigational skills. Your group management, leadership and trailside repairs skills will be verified out on the trail using a combination of real situations and simulation based questioning and practical sessions.

We try to create a relaxed and comfortable assessment environment and although it it’s a formal assessment we try to encourage continual development and learning throughout the day. All learners will be provided with personal action plans for future development after the assessment.

A link to the theory paper, that needs to be completed before the practical assessment, will be sent once a place has been booked.
