Instructors and Leaders

Cycling Instructors

Cycling Instructors can be grouped into three areas or themes where qualifications are available. Cycle Trainers, are individuals who deliver “cycle proficiency” programmes to children or adults. A Leader will provide an experiential activity, either on low level routes or adventure activities in wild places. A Coach will support individuals or groups to improve their sporting performance.

A Leader is the general term for an individual who delivers a range of experientialactivities and programmes often in an off-road environment on paths and trails or at an MTB centre. This could be as an adventurous  activity, to access the outdoors, for field studies or to make a journey along one of our traditional routes or rights of way. Cycling Scotland can
provide Cycle Ride Leader training through our network of qualified Tutors.
