Mountain Bike Leader Training

Over the weekend we were on our mountain bike leader (MBL) training course down in the Tweed Valley. This is the highest level and the most widely recognised qualification for biking. We picked up lots of awesome tips on coaching and leadership styles from Andy  (Ridelines (Mountain Bike Tuition) Ltd) and Al (Wheelie Cool Mountain Biking).

Saturday was mostly classroom based with some skills coaching sessions and Sunday was a full day ride.

I spent most of our ride out day dying to reach the descent and hit the natural techy trails as Keith and I haven’t had a chance to ride much recently due to our upcoming ML assessment.

In the process of booking our MBL assessment now so will hopefully be fully qualified in a month or so :)
