Train for Trails

Level One

Never been off-road, or want to increase your skills? 

Do you have a dual-sport bike and never taken it off the tarmac? Not sure how it will feel or how to react when it does? Perhaps you're thinking of buying a greenlaner, or you're about to take a trip of a lifetime to the Himalayas and you need to hone your off-road skills. 

Level one Train For Trails is the perfect introduction to the joys of trail riding or the ideal refresher course for those who may not have been off the tarmac in a while. It has been carefully designed by qualified instructors and ex-police bikers to increase your skills in a f safe and fun environment.

 

Join us at our base near Welshpool for a day of learning the foundations of trail riding. We progress gently through the day to build confidence and ability. 

We teach you the basics of off-road riding, including

  • bike pick up

  • bike balance

  • body positioning and weight control seated and standing

  • lever control

  • riding on loose and wet surfaces

  • hill recovery

  • brake and clutch control

All these skills will aid you in progressing towards trail riding in the uk, preparing you for a big trip abroad, or simply building confidence on your road bike. Whatever you decide to do next, our main aim is to ensure you have a fun day out with us here at Moto Junkies. 

Join us on your own bike or hire one of ours.

 

As we are on private land, you do not require a bike licence. However, you must know how to ride a motorbike. If you do not, we would recommend you try our 1-2-1 tuition first. 


Max group size is 8. Minimum 5.
