British Mountain Bike Leader: Night Leader Award

The Mountain Bike Night Leader Award (Night Leader Award or NLA) enables existing British Cycling qualified mountain bike leaders to lead beyond the hours of daylight extending the opportunities for your groups to be led through twilight and darkness. Night Leaders are able to offer amazing mountain bike experiences for their groups during evening and night rides throughout the year.

The Night Leader Award is aimed at qualified mountain bike leaders with substantial night riding experience looking to lead groups and individuals confidently and competently after sundown. Leaders retain their ability to lead in the same conditions as their main mountain bike leadership award, extending their capacity to lead beyond the hours of daylight. Please see The Remit of the Award: for the full extent of leading opportunities when holding this award.

The Night Leader Award comprises three parts, pre-training tasks, a training course and a subsequent assessment.
