Mountain Bike Ride Leading and coaching
Skills Courses. Ride Leader Courses, Beginner Courses.

Locations: Sheffield, The Peak District, White Peak, Dark Peak.

AwesomeMTB is run by me, Mini Mansell.

MIAS Level 5 mountain bike coach and tutor with QCF level 3.
Member of the Association of British Cycling Coaches (ABCC)
Member of The association of mountain bike guides (AMBG)

I also have the Mountain Bike Expedition  and Night Ride Leader qualifications.

I safely lead my clients around the interesting, challenging and sometimes demanding areas of the Peak District.

My rides and courses follow the structure of SEL:

  • Safety
  • Enjoyment
  • Learning

I will lead a ride in a safe manner, ensuring it’s enjoyable, and you learn to control your bike during the ride.

I focus on:

  • Use of gears, brakes, steering, suspension
  • Stance, posture and body positioning
  • Observation and reading terrain features

You will have an upgraded knowledge of how your bike works and where to place your body for different types of terrain. This will improve your climbing, your descents and your level of fun while out on your bike.

A skilful knowledgeable rider is a stress free rider, and a stress free rider is a happier and safer rider.

I am insured, hold an enhanced DBS disclosure (previously known as CRB) and subscribe to the annual DBS update service.

I am a first aid trainer with Advanced Outdoor First Aid, Paediatric First Aid, First Aid at Work qualifications and I undergo Safeguarding Children Training yearly.
Risk assessments are available for all activities.

I’m very proud to support Edale Mountain Rescue. If you have a few pounds a month to spare, you can support this excellent charity who operate every day of the year, rescuing people who have accidents or injuries in the outdoors.

    I did my MIAS course with Mini and I would definitely recommend. Mini was extremely fun, enthusiastic and approachable, as well as highly knowledgeable and competent in the content. He had fantastic knowledge about the local area too which added even more to the course and overall experience.
    He has a great ethos and makes you feel very welcome and included.
