"We just hosted the first PNW Wilderness First Aid class instructed by Backcountry Lifeline in partnership with Trans-Cascadia and it was invaluable. We highly recommend getting trained and having the knowledge to put into action when things inevitably get weird out there." - Transition Bikes

"BCLL has the recipe for teaching mountain bikers an invaluable, yet often overlooked, skill set. I can't imagine a more fun and effective approach, their talented crew will surely become even more dialed as they reach more riders in more communities!"
- Jordyn Drayton

Wilderness First Aid for Mountain bikers 

Advanced riders ride A LOT. They go further, faster, and bigger. The stoke factor is high, along with the risks.  ​If most of your days are spent on your bike, you owe it to your friends, and to yourself, to know what to do when things go wrong. If you ride in the Backcountry, and like to get away from the rat race, your first aid training needs to match your adventure.
