Just wondering what other feathers cycle training folks have in their feather carrying thingy, that relate to cycling / cycle promotion.
Not trying to start a willy-waving thread of "i've got more certificates than you" type posts, just after some inspiration for other things I could go out and experience - others may be inspired also.
well seeing as youve asked
CTC offroad Trail/Tech leader.
Grade 1 C.S.E. Mathematics.
I have a first aid qualification and a "valid" CRB!
I passed my cycling proficiency when I was 11.
Oh well, coulda been an interesting thread. I've got Smbla trail cycle leader, now thinking about doing the new Go-Mtb add on - probably more use in urban areas as it's like National Standard L1 at the basic level upto more advanced stuff like wheelies and skids and falling off in gnarly ways, so can be run in parks etc. It's only a 1 day course and assessment so not as onerous as Go Ride coach.
I have the SMBLA TCL too - it was my first cycling qualification.
I did the British Cycling Level 2 certificate last year and have just done the MTB discipline specific level 2 unit. Next weekend I'll be doing the BMX discipline specific level 2 and hopefully before the end of the year I'll add the road and time trial unit.
I run Go-Ride sessions at a local MTB venue so I wanted the specific training to allow me to give the best coaching. I'm involved with a local co-operative that's opening a closed-road circuit and BMX track in the spring - hence the other stuff.
Every course I've been on has been a useful forum for exchanging ideas and I always pick up something I can transfer to other disciplines.
Masters in typing the angriest on the football thread.
Level Three Bully.
I failed my cycling proficiency when I was 11 because I failed to signal due to no vehicles behind me.
It was until last year when i took Cycle Training with Will who told me that it was actually the right thing to do.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
