Aim: To be able to plan and follow routes in the countryside using paths and tracks.
Mountain Bike navigation
The Bronze National Navigation Award is a practical hands-on award. It is aimed at people with no navigation experience whether you are new to the outdoors or have been relying on others, guidebooks or easy well-defined routes.
We will meet on the first day and then head out into Coed y Brenin for a day of practical learning and shorter sessions to help understand the different things to learn. On the second day we will meet at the same location and after a recap in the morning, we'll do a variety of short journeys to check you can navigate to that level.
The course will be mainly outdoors, so please dress appropriately, we will spend time on and off the bike, so a well maintained bike and good shoes are essential.
You'll need bring a pack lunch because we may take lunch on the trail. We will not move quickly on techmical terrain - the first is usually shorter in distance due to stop-start travelling to help explain difference techniques.
We will e-mail you 2 days before with final information.
