Do you want to lead others on Mountain Bike rides and share your skills & knowledge 

Our courses enable you to lead Mountain Bike rides safely through practical and engaging training at some of the best outdoor venues throughout the country. 

We have four courses available and a direct pathway to Level 3 for those who have recognised alternative qualifications.

FUN-MBL is our entry level qualification for beginning your mountain bike leadership journey, enabling you to gain the tools and understanding to become an aspirational, inspirational, confident MTB leader in the outdoors.

Level 1 Outdoor Centre Accreditation is site-specific and is designed for organisations such as outdoor activity centres, colleges or trail centres to upskill members of staff or volunteers to enable them to lead introductory level mountain bike rides on limited pre-determined routes.

The Level 2 award is ideal for anyone with experience in mountain biking, working in the outdoor sector, volunteering or looking to start up their own lead MTB rides.

The Level 3 award is for recognised qualified mountain bike leaders, who wish to extend their remit to include remote terrain and trails of severe technical difficulty and navigation in challenging mountain conditions.
