Grade 1 Training
The training course that Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman completed before their epic Long Way Round ride.
The Course is all off road and riders will be taught how to manage steep inclines, loose gravel and rocky surfaces which are all part of this training experience where clients will learn all the essential skills to become a competent and safe off road rider.
“Best training i have ever had” Jim 2015, ” I was about to get out of biking but this training has re-inspired me” Peter 2015
