British Cycling’s MTB Leadership Award Scheme (UKMBLS)

For more than 10 years, Cycle Wild Scotland was the biggest independent provider of Scottish Cycling’s Mountain Bike Leader awards.  Now that SC has harmonised with British Cycling, we provide all three levels of the new UK-wide scheme.

There are currently three forms of qualification, with Level 1 providing a site-specific award for Outdoor Education Centres, while Level 2 and Level 3 are for those wanting to work or volunteer as a mtb leader and share their passion for mountain biking with others.

Level 1

Level 1 Mountain Bike Leadership is a site-specific award designed for organisations such as Outdoor Education Centres. The aim of this award is to upskill members of staff to a standard that enables them to lead introductory level mountain bike rides on set routes in a safe and enjoyable environment.

If you would like more information about the Level 1 award and think it may be useful for your business, please contact us.

Level 2

British Cycling’s Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award furnishes mountain bikers with the skills and knowledge to safely guide riders in mountainous terrain and provide them with a great trip or day out.

The award is ideal for anyone with experience in mountain biking who is working in the outdoor sector (or wants to), for teachers, club helpers or youth leaders, or those with a personal interest in going out on their mountain bike, being safe and having more fun.

For more information go to our dedicated Level 2 page.

Level 3

The Level 3 Mountain Bike Leadership Award is aimed at highly experienced mountain bike leaders looking to lead groups and individuals in wilder, remoter and/or more technical terrain than the Level 2/TCL award remit allows.

It is the most up-to-date and appropriate guiding qualification in the UK for technical riding.
