The assessment for the Level 2 MTB Leadership Award takes the form of a written assignment, which you complete in the weeks prior to your practical assessment, which is a 1 day practical.
There is a minimum guideline of completing your assessment at least 6 weeks after your training, and maximum of 18 months after your training, after this time you be asked to re-do your training.
The written assignment is an open book home study task and comprises of a range of short answer questions. This task is based on the information included in the British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Handbook and other resources provided on the course.
Once payment has been received for your assessment place, the assessment questionnaire will be sent to you via e-mail (paper copies are available upon request) and should be returned to your course provider no later than seven days prior to your practical assessment date. Please ensure you allow plenty of time to complete and return the questionnaire before your assessment day.
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 up to 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.
