“Unequivocally the most professional and supportive training course I have been on.
I have not only started my role as an MTB leader well but also gained a lot of professional skills to take into my daily work practice. I will recommend you to anyone I know thinking of doing the course.  I will look forward to doing my level 3 next year!”          Paul McKellar,  L2 Leader

The Level 2 British Mountain Bike Leader Award equips experienced mountain bikers with the knowledge and skills to safely guide others on off-road terrain so you can all have more fun on bikes.

NB The British Mountain Bike Leadership Awards (BMBLA) were formerly known as the UKMBLS and British Cycling’s Mountain Bike Leader awards. 

Course overview

The Level 2 Mountain Bike Leader Award is ideal for anyone with experience in mountain biking who is either working or looking to work in the outdoor sector or simply has a personal interest in gaining all the information needed to go out on their mountain bike, be safe and have fun.

The award consists of a two-day training course and a subsequent one-day assessment.

The majority of the two-day training course is practical and takes place out on the trail in some of the best MTB areas in Scotland.

A one-day practical assessment will follow after a minimum consolidation period of approximately six weeks allowing sufficient time for you to hone the new skills and knowledge you have obtained during training.
