  • Course Description

    The Level 3 Mountain Bike Leadership Award is aimed at experienced, qualified leaders who are ready to take the next step and increase their ability to create inspiring and long-lasting experiences. This could be for clients or friends, operating in remote environments and on physically demanding trails of high technical difficulty.

    Delivered by our British Cycling licenced tutors, The Level 3 Mountain Bike Leadership Award is aimed at experienced leaders who are ready to take the next step and increase their scope for creating inspiring and long-lasting experiences, for clients or friends, through guiding rides in remote environments and on physically demanding trails of high technical difficulty. This award is the next progression from the Level 2 Award and is the highest level of MTB Leadership Qualification offered by British Cycling. Leaders at this level will 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 Level 3 Mountain Bike Leadership Award particularly focuses on leading groups in technical terrain and trails of technical difficulty. The training covers the following areas;

    • Advanced trail side repairs
    • Route planning and navigation strategies for technical terrain
    • Group management in technical terrain
    • Risk assessment
    • Managing accidents and emergencies
    • Promoting hydration and nutrition
    • Methods for developing attentional focus 

    Pre-requisites - To attend the training, you will need to:

    • Be at least 18-years-old
    • Be well practiced and fully qualified in the Level 2 Mountain Bike Leadership Award (or TCL or MBL Awards as appropriate)
    • Be a committed mountain biker prepared to ride all day in challenging, up to black-graded terrain, with energy in reserve
    • Be a skillful rider, competent at negotiating the typical trail features found in Level 3 terrain, where obvious line choices and rollable options are often not available. Required techniques include step-up, bunny-hop and drop-off skills
    • Be comfortable with setting a map, taking bearings and creating flow in a trail environment
    • Have a working knowledge of the variety of mechanical systems on current mountain bikes and a desire to increase this knowledge
    • Hold a current two day outdoor First Aid certificate
    You will be required to send your log book to us, demonstrating that you have fulfilled the following minimum requirements for training. In preparation for the Level 3 Mountain Bike Leadership Award, you should log at least 30 quality days since the completion of Level 2. The majority of these should be within the last 12-18 months and represent all the UK has to offer. At least 12 of these rides should be as group leader or assistant leader.
