Course Content. The British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award Training (MBLAT) is a 2-day course. The course covers a wide variety of topics including planning and delivery of appropriate rides or your group, leading techniques for effective group management, map reading and navigation for a flowing journey, management of accidents and emergency situations, equipment set-up and trailside repairs and core mountain bike techniques. The award will qualify you to lead in non-adventurous terrain in strictly summer and intermediate seasonal conditions and in terrain of low-moderate technical difficulty (as a general guide this is comparable to red graded purpose built trails). There is no height limit however leaders must ensure they are no more than 30 minutes walk away from rescue.
Prior to attending the training course candidates will need to:
• Be 18 years old or over.
• Have mountain biking experience in a variety of terrain and weather conditions.
• Be competent in the techniques and skills required to safely negotiate the typical trail features encountered in the Level 2 environment. As a general guide this is comparable to red-graded purpose-built trails.
• Candidates must have registered with the British Cycling (BC) Mountain Bike Leadership Scheme. This includes: BC membership, registration on the scheme and resources; if you are already a member of British Cycling, your fee will be less. This should be done at least 3/4 weeks prior to the course.
