British Cycling Level 3 MTB Award

British Cycling Level 3 MTB 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 its 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.
