British Cycling Mountain Bike Leadership Level 2 Assessment
British Cycling Award
You'll be assessed on the skills you developed on your Level 2 training to show that you're an effective mountain bike leader, so you'll need to demonstrate navigation and route finding skills and incident management techniques, amongst others.
We’re surrounded by some of the finest mountain biking routes in Europe, with world class single track routes, including the Gwydyr Forest trails and the Penmachno Trail right outside our back door. Other classic trails at Coed y Brenin and Coed Llandegla are only a short drive from our centre. Plus, there’s the iconic ride of Snowdon. But you'll also find purpose-built skills and coaching circuit and bike workshop facility with a wide range of tools and resources, plus maps to help you get the most from the area.
You'll need to bring full leaders equipment, bike, and riding gear.
Assessment routes are commonly 30km + with up to 1000m of climbing, navigation will be in both forest and open mountain side, so it's well worth getting out in the hills and forests to be well prepared for the assessment. You will also need to ensure you have returned your home paper to PyB at least one week prior to the start of your assessment.
