We're thrilled to confirm that the BCC is training up 11 of its members as Ride Leaders.
After 40 hrs of training, held over 4 1/2 days, the candidates will be CTC qualified MTB Trail Leaders carrying the ITC Outdoor Activity First Aid certificate also.
Being able to provide professional quality guided rides will help stimulate the local MTB community, and will also enable new riders to come along and try the sport out in a safe and enjoyable way.
The training will be completed by the 28th Feb, and the newly qualified Ride Leaders will start immediately in march.
It's taken some time to get to this point, but we're really excited, and of course very grateful to Marion Liquorice (Elizabethan Evening) and Marjory Hatvany (awesome fancy dress evening!) for their charitable donations and fund raising efforts that have made this possible.
