Consultancy and Technical Advisors

We currently act as Technical Advisors for British Cycling , Forestry Commission England and the National Trust plus many large Local Authorities and many Outdoor Organisations such as Cumbria County Council and Hartlepool Council, Rock UK, Abernethy Trust and the Institute for Outdoor Learning (IOL) to name just a few.

As the first British Cycling Tutors in MTB coaching and MTB leadership, we have considerable experience in the development and delivery of both leadership and coaching qualifications which are now considered as "the standard". As the UK's biggest provider of the Mountain Bike Leaders training (formerly SMBLA and now British Cycling), we have trained almost 4,000 leaders. Additionally both Craig and Rich were once responsible for the management of Europe's largest hire fleet of over 4,500 bikes and we are happy to pass on and advise on current legislation, best practice and fleet management solutions.
