The purpose of the Mountain Bike Instructors Award Scheme (MIAS) is to promote the safe enjoyment of mountain biking in an off-road environment. The course provides technical and group management skills required by those who wish to lead groups into such terrain.
It introduces training, experience and assessment in a variety of testing conditions in off-road country. The MIAS scheme is recognised throughout the UK and by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA). Successful completion of assessment enables approval for the leadership of mountain biking in country parks, canal towpaths and low level rides on recognised bridleways up to 600m in wilderness terrain.
The MIAS scheme is both a training and assessment programme within the structure of the whole course. If you are able to demonstrate appropriate skills, knowledge and experience within the course duration then the potential to gain the award over the two days is possible. If you need to be assessed on a later date then your instructor will provide an action plan for your development outside of the course and invite you to return on a later date.
