Join the NorCal High School Mountain Bike League and Otis Guy: Wilderness First Aid Class, for an innovative Wilderness First Aid training created by and for mountain bike coaches and ride leaders. This 16-hour training is designed to prepare mountain bike coaches and anyone who rides bicycles in the wilderness to confidently and effectively respond to injuries and illness that can occur while riding. The training will focus on staying calm, making good decisions, and relevant hands-on practice, including on-the-trail scenarios specifically designed for mountain bike coaches. Upon completion, each participant will receive a Wilderness First Aid-Mountain Bike (WFA-MTB) Certification good for 3 years.
