Are you leading groups out on mountain bikes?

Did you know that you really should be qualified, to protect the group and yourself!!!

There is nothing worse than organising a ride and having some major issue that you don’t know how to deal with. What do you do when…

  • someone gets lost or separated from the group
  • you have a mechanical breakdown, can you fix it?
  • someone in the group is air lifted off, what do you do? How do you manage the situation?
  • your group don’t have the skill for your planned route and some of them want to go the easy way, how do you manage it?

These are just a few things that can be thrown at you as a ride leader. Having the skill and knowledge to react appropriately can make the difference, and believe me with mountain biking it can go pear shaped very fast.

 

We offer courses that result in an internationally recognised qualification for leading groups out on mountain bikes. These courses are ideal for teachers, youth group leaders or anyone who is involved with a MTB club. In fact everyone who attends our courses leave feeling more confident and assured they are prepared for the trails. From developing more skills to stay on the bike, understanding the basic trail maintenance repairs to get you home, having some first aid knowledge and much more.It gives you the skills and knowledge to keep your group safe whilst enjoying the great outdoors.

Merry Christmas

Just wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. We hope that 2016 has given you all you hoped for and that you are as excited as we are for 2017.

If you are reading this then you have already discovered our new website and our pre 2017 launch of ‘Bike Hub’.

Bike Hub will see us expand our teaching portfolio from offering the ‘Mountain-bike Instructors Award Scheme‘ and their MTB Leaders Award and Search & Rescue Award. To now adding maintenance courses as well as a few spin off ideas that will be a great success we hope, as the new year progresses.

Your feedback has been encouraging so far and we thank you for all your comments and words of advice.

Have a great Christmas, don’t eat to much and if you do over indulge just grab your bike out of the garage and bash out a couple of hours, because that is what I will be doing.

Thanks for your support.

See you on the other side.
