the two day course was a great introduction to the process of becoming a capable trail cycle leader, Simon used some great examples to set the scene and challenged us all to think about the management tools we would use to deliver an exciting, challenging but safe time for our riders. A great experience - Many thanks
The weekend of the 22nd saw the first of two Trail Cycle Leader (TCL) courses being run at Evanton Woods. The trainees were youth leaders from Highlife Highland who will use their new found skills to run cycling activities at Evanton this coming summer. The course, which is run by Scottish Cycling, covers aspects of bike maintainance and riding skills through to planning and leadership skills and is seen as essential training for those wishing to lead groups of all ages and abilities off road.
