CTC Trail Leader Course Leeds Sailing Club 05-06.11.12

Had a great couple of days over in Yorkshire near where I grew up running a CTC Trail Leader course for Leeds Sailing club. The course is a couple of days long and runs through all the key aspects of leading groups out on MTB riders. The Trail Leader course is also the entry point for more advanced CTC qualifications too.

The first day is based around the candidates having a go a leading groups focusing on Leader position, stopping points and good communication skills. We also looked at incident management, basic navigation and skills development out on the ride and then washing and lubing bikes and some hands on bike maintenance afterwards.


The guys test out a group shelter on the trail. The second day is based around an assessment ride where each candidate leads a section of trail and deals with an incident and mechanical issues along the way. We had another grab day out on the bikes and after individual de briefs everyone passed the course so the guys will be out delivering MTB sessions to young riders in the Leeds area shortly. Congratulations everyone had a great couple of days with you all!
