British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award
British Cycling’s Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award is the entry-level qualification for anyone with experience in mountain biking who is working or looking to work in the outdoor leadership or education sector. It is also a useful course for people who simply have a personal interest in gaining all the information needed to go out on their mountain bike, be safe and have fun.
This two-day course, followed by a one-day assessment, covers a whole range of skills from bike navigation to trailside repairs and basic skills sessions.
There are restrictions to where you can lead with this course (altitude / distance from help / level of terrain) but for most outdoor centres and private leaders it is the new benchmark qualification that makes biking safer and more enjoyable for all future clients.
Our training courses are run from the CycleActive centre at Brougham Hall in Penrith and our assessment courses are run from Ambleside in the heart of the Lakes. This gives you access to great local trails, carefully organised teaching areas and a good range of accommodation choices nearby too.
Further details of the BC Level 2 syllabus, pre-entry requirements and other useful facts are below the course dates (Keep scrolling). If you want to talk through your suitability for this course before applying, contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss your questions or concerns.
You will need a "16 hour Outdoor First Aid" before your assessment. We recommend Vital Signs First Aid
