British Cycling L2 MTB Leadership Course


British Cycling’s Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award enables experienced mountain bikers to safely guide others on off-road terrain, thus spreading the bug that we all know, is impossible to shake.


Course overview


The Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award is ideal for anyone with experience in mountain biking, who is either working or looking to work in the outdoor sector or simply has a personal interest in gaining all the information needed to go out on their mountain bike, be safe and have fun. The majority of the training is practical and takes place out on the trail in some of the best MTB areas in the UK.


A practical assessment will follow after a consolidation period of approximately six weeks allowing sufficient time for you to hone all those new skills and knowledge you have obtained during training.



Course content


The course covers a wide variety of topics including:

  •Planning and delivery of rides that are appropriate for your group.

  •Leading techniques for effective group management.

  •Map reading and navigation for a flowing journey.

  •Management of accidents and emergency situations.

  •Equipment set-up and trailside repairs.

  •Core mountain bike techniques.




To attend the training you will need to:

  •Be at least 18 years old.

  •Have mountain biking experience in a variety of terrain and weather conditions.

  •Be competent in the techniques and skills required to safely negotiate the typical trail features encountered at this level of award (as a general guide this is comparable to red graded purpose built trails).

  •Have an appropriate level of physical fitness for a day’s riding in the level 2 leading environment*

  •Hold a current two-day outdoor First Aid certificate issued by an HSE registered provider (this can be handed in at a later date, but must be submitted before assessment)

  •You will need to provide us with logbook evidence of having undertaken a minimum number of rides in the appropriate terrain within the last 6-12 months. A logbook will be sent to you prior to training.
