MTB Leadership

MTB Leadership Homepage

The mountains, hills and rugged terrain of Great Britain provide a stunning backdrop to our new MTB Leadership Award, as the skills of effective Leadership are outlined through practical and engaging activities at some of the best outdoor venues throughout the country.

There are currently three qualifications, with Level 1 providing an industry standard for Outdoor Education Centres, while Level 2 and 3 are for aspiring individuals who want to share a passion for mountain biking with others as a qualified Leader of mountain bike rides.

Update - UK Mountain Bike Leadership Scheme

As British Cycling, Scottish Cycling and Welsh Cycling move to strengthen mountain bike leadership in the UK, the delivery of the awards will gradually switch over to the new UK Mountain Bike Leadership Scheme between now and December 2015.
