Mountain Bike Leadership and Coaching Based on the southern edge of the Cairngorms and just east of Highland Perthshire in Alyth Like2Bike offer confidence inspiring mountain bike courses.
As a Mountain Bike Leaders Association (MBLA formerly SMBLA) Tutor I believe I provide leadership courses, coaching courses and guided experiences at the very highest level.

Just a little feedback from this weekends like2bike course. Good one Lewis.
I've had a little time to reflect now on Saturday and wanted to thank you for all of the tips and advice throughout the day. It was a really good experience and I felt I learned a lot which will put me in a good place for my journey into working in the outdoors! As I said I on Saturday, I felt the way you approach learning points and your approach to the assessment day as a whole was also very helpful and made for as stress free an assessment day as is possible.
Last assessment of the year, places still available for 24th November in Dunkeld. Contact [email protected] for further details.

A British Cycling Mountain Bike Leadership survey. I’m not going to lie it’s quite a long survey, but worth doing specially to raise the voice of recreational mountain bikers in the UK. Help British Cycling understand why we ride our mountain bikes, in turn this should help those within the machine shout louder for us. For leaders and non leaders alike https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/VVFRPSD
