The British Cycling Level 2 Assessment day is available to all candidates wishing to complete their British Cycling qualification following the Level 2 Training course. It is recommended that you leave approx 6 weeks between training and assessment in order to fully understand your training - leading to a positive outcome at assessment.
Assessment for the Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award consists of a practical assessment and a written assignment.
The practical assessment consists of an all-day mountain bike journey during which each candidate will be assigned to lead a section of the assessment route of up to 10km working with a ratio of 1:4. You will be expected to deliver a flowing journey whilst demonstrating good leadership and navigational skills.
The assessment procedure is informal and is designed to help you develop your skills as a mountain bike leader. The group you lead can consist of other riders who are also being assessed on the same day and/or riders who are there simply to fulfill the role as participants on the ride.
The written assignment is an open book home study task and comprises of a range of short answer questions. This task is based on the information included in the British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Handbook and other resources provided on the training course.
Once payment has been received for your assessment place, the assessment questionnaire will be sent to you via e-mail (paper copies are available upon request) and should be returned to Cyclewise no later than seven days prior to your practical assessment date. Please ensure you allow plenty of time to complete and return the questionnaire before your assessment day.If you have completed your training and are unsure if you are ready for assessment please contact us with any concerns you have and we will help you in any way we can.
You will be required to bring a copy of your First Aid certificate your British Cycling Registration Number and details of your Educare Programme if you did not submit this information on your training course. If you do not bring these on the day or you have not submitted them on your training course, you may be unable to complete the assessment.

Referral and Reassessment
It is the intention that you are provided with enough information and guidance through training and prior to assessment that you are able to have a successful outcome. There are however occasions where this may not be the case and referral can occur. Depending on which criteria have not yet been met, a variety of actions can fulfill a future reassessment, for example written evidence, a one to one demonstration with a tutor or attendance on another assessment day.
Upon qualification British Cycling will provide you with the relevant certification and add your details to a database of guides to promote your guiding services.
