Riding Course

We train you on the road. While we could teach you theory in a classroom over some of your evenings, the best classroom is real world. Every Tutors' bike is equipped with radio and you will be given an intercom so that you can receive commentary and guidance throughout your ride. Your Tutor will explain how to deal with hazards, road positioning, bike handling skills and how to read the road ahead. Regular rest stops during the ride provide an opportunity to discuss points of detail and explain (and debate) some of the finer points of Roadcraft, the system of riding we employ.

The rides take place at times of mutual convenience and are tailored to the needs of each individual. You can expect to cover between 50 and 150 miles during a session depending on the type of roads being ridden and the areas of development for the individual concerned. Of course, advanced riders must be able to apply their skills in all conditions and you can expect to be trained in both wet and dry conditions to allow your skills to develop.

We are, however, always aware of the need for safety and never push riders beyond their capabilities. With targeted training we aim to incrementally provide all of those we train with the skills, temperament and know-how to ride progressively and safely in all conditions.
