Wilderness First Aid for Mountain Bikers
The Washington Student Cycling League has partnered Backcountry Medical Guides to offer this remarkable 18-Hour Wilderness First Aid Course emphasizing real life scenarios on the trail.
There are few sports that can transport you as quickly and deeply into the backcountry as mountain biking can. We have developed our program to expand from our Core Systems curriculum with the focus on specific safety topics for mountain bikers.
Our course is active and practical – participants will learn fundamental wilderness medicine and prevention, while developing important judgment skills for outdoor emergencies. Additionally, we review emergency repairs, sports nutrition, hydration, and common mountain bike emergencies.
This Mountain Bike series covers all the WFA curriculum, but emphasizes situations particular to mountain biking emergencies.
