“Level 3 mountain bike leader training completed…learned loads, had heaps of fun and have an action plan to get ready for assessment. Loved it!  Thanks Cycle Wild Scotland.”  Liz Peacock,  L3 candidate, October 2017


The BMBLA’s Level 3 leader award equips experienced leaders with the further skills and knowledge to take groups and individuals on demanding wilderness rides in the most remote corners of the country and throughout the world.

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 BMBLA Level 3  award is aimed at experienced mtb leaders who want to guide in remote environments and on physically demanding trails of high technical difficulty.

Leaders at this level need to be proficient in all areas of mountain bike leadership, as well as being highly-skilled mountain bike riders. The three-day training course builds upon the skills and knowledge gained at Level 2, with specific topics covered in more depth.

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