Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking is a hugely popular sport and the level of interest has not showed any signs of slowing since the initial boom in the early 1990s. With so many people getting involved, it is hardly surprising to find instructor opportunities available for those people wishing to get involved beyond the purely personal level. So how do you get the right qualifications that will allow you to teach other people? And should you go the MIAS route or the MBLA route? We look at everything you need to consider, and speak to some industry insiders for a low-down on each qualification.

DofE Assessor

DofE Assessor

The Duke of Edinburgh scheme is well known to most people, but how many know about the expedition element of the award which requires small groups to make their way, unaided, across wild terrain, for up to four days and three nights of wild camping? To make sure each group successfully completes their expedition, we enter the secret world of the assessors - the people who shadow the candidates, often unseen, as they trek through the wilderness. Read our interview with Georgina and find out how you too can add expedition assessor to your outdoor instructor profile.
