Mountain Bike Leader

Learn the skills to guide group rides on off-road routes and trails.
Key Content: 

Mountain biking is one of the most accessible, enjoyable introductions to group cycling. Cycling UK's Mountain Bike Leader course enables you to lead groups on gentle terrain - less than 600m above sea level and without the need for riders to steer a path around obstacles.  The course includes tuition for your own off-road skills, and assessment of your new-found skills.

This course will equip you to:

  • Lead groups of adults, young people and children on rides
  • Manage groups with a range of riding experience 
  • Prepare for rides, anticipate and minimise safety factors
  • Develop and apply risk assessments, operating procedures and dynamic risk management
  • Provide fun, engaging and developmental sessions for your participants
