Overview

The mountains, hills and rugged terrain of North Wales provide a stunning backdrop to the British Cycling Level 2 MTB Leadership Award. You'll hone your leadership skills on some of Snowdonia's most challenging mountain bike venues. We'll give you an outline of the procedures and criteria for your assessment so you'll know what to expect. Our friendly, highly qualified instructors will help you to achieve the level where you can safely guide riders in mountainous terrain and provide them with a great day out. 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.
