AAC(UK) Mountain Bike Leadership Courses

The AAC(UK) now has a number of level 2 MTB leaders around the UK organising rides and meets for members. If you feel you have the skills to complete British Cycling’s Leader Level 2 training (www.britishcycling.org.uk/mtbleadership) a grant may be available. .  The aim is to develop a network of qualified MTB Leaders around the country with leaders organising events in their areas. As the group develops, meets and tours overseas will be organised.
