For activity centres and organisations delivering Mountain Biking taster sessions on a regular basis, with seasonal staff, the BC Level 2 Leadership course can be a step too far for their leaders.

In this case, the British Cycling Level 1 Centre Accreditation can be the perfect answer.

We work with British Cycling and your centre to assess the setup, train staff, and make sure that the centre is adequately equipped with the knowledge and understanding  to delivery fun, safe taster sessions, with an overall British Cycling stamp of approval. Please feel free to contact ourselves or British Cycling to discuss this programme.



We also offer a range of services, including Technical Advice for Activity Centres and other organisations delivering Mountain Biking activities as well as bike hire. We have worked with The South West Lakes Trust and The Sea Cadets to name a few.

We can deliver bespoke training days for staff, tailored to the specific needs of the venue.

Please get in touch to find out more.

    Practical assessment

    The practical assessment consists of an all-day mountain bike journey during which each candidate will be assigned to lead a section of the assessment route, working with a ratio of 1:5. You will be expected to deliver a flowing journey whilst demonstrating good leadership and navigational skills.

    The assessment procedure is informal and is designed to help you develop your skills as a mountain bike leader. The group you lead can consist of other riders who are also being assessed on the same day and/ or riders who are there, simply to fulfil the role as participants on the ride.
