Adding value to Local Identity and Natural and Cultural Resources
Mountain Bike Guides training project
The project is to provide additional recognised training & further skills training to Mountain Bike Guiding Business and volunteer MB guides for cycling clubs, enabling additional/enhanced activities to be provided to the customers and mountain bike clubs, as well as developing the reputation and professionalism of mountain biking in the Vale of Usk.
A bespoke Vale of Usk Mountain Bike Ambassador course is also available, to address local history, biodiversity & local stories etc – adding a new dimension to the visitor experience.
What will the project achieve
The Vale of Usk would like to be recognised as an area of regional excellence for Mountain Bike guiding through the guides having nationally recognised skills. The Ambassador/Sense of place training adds a new dimension for the mountain bike visitor, including information about the area not just the experience.
The application was approved on 20th April 2016 with a total RDP project cost of £9,009. Applications are on a first come, first served basis, for further information contact email@example.com
