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

Understanding The Tour Grade System

This ride grade system is a guide only and it should not be assumed that if a grade 4 ride, for example, is booked and a rider has had limited experience on dirt that it will be beyond them.

Likewise it should not be assumed that if a grade one ride is booked a rider is assured that no dirt will be ever encountered, governments love road works.
