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. 


Join us at our base near Welshpool for a morning of training on private land. We teach you the basics of off-road riding, including

  • body positioning

  • how to lift your bike safely

  • riding inclines with confidence

  • riding on loose and wet surfaces

  • riding ruts 


After lunch we will take you out on the trails to put your new found skills into practice. 

Our groups take a steady day, enjoying the scenery with an expert guide who will ease you in gently, offer advice and build up your confidence as we ride in one of my favourite parts of the world! Before you know it, you'll be planning your Dakar debut – or maybe just feel happier that you are using the bike to its full potential. 

If you are unsure if your bike is suitable, feel free to give us a shout.

This is a very relaxed day with the promise of many giggles.

Max group size is 10. Minimum 5.
