LEVEL 1 & 2: BEGINNERS
In order for you to get maximum enjoyment from your day, you need to accurately choose your ability level. Motorcycle trials is a completely different skill to all other forms of motorcycling. We have found that experience of other motorcycle disciplines does not automatically transfer into trials riding ability.
This Level 1: Beginners experience day is suitable for riders who have previously ridden on the road and have no trials riding experience. This level will introduce you to the basics of riding a motorcycle trials bike.
Also, our Level 2: Beginners experience is suitable for riders who have previously ridden off-road, but have no trials riding experience. This level will introduce you to the basics of riding a motorcycle trials bike.
A typical days runs 9.30am-2.30pm with an hours lunch break. Bike hire and riding gear (boots, helmet, gloves, trials pants and a jersey*) are included, as well as full tuition and a hot homemade lunch.
Ride the latest technology with a choice of 2 full sized adults electric bikes – one has a clutch the same as a petrol bike and the other has a PRB (Progressive Regenerative Brake) which is best suited to those with a mountain biking background.
Beginners will usually start on electric bikes unless you have ridden a motorcycle offroad with a clutch before – you will then have a choice of electric or petrol bike. Petrol wise, we have Beta Evo and Montesa Cota bikes to choose from. Not ridden a bike with a clutch before? We ask that you complete a day on the electric bikes first, then come back to ride petrol once the foundations have been established.
Training will start off on flattish ground doing ‘figures of 8’ to get you used to the bike. Your instructor will teach the very basics of bike control and get you comfortable on the bike before gradually progressing onto ‘sections’. Sections are essentially obstacles which your instructor will mark out using coloured flags. As the day progresses, so will your skills! Each day is tailored dynamically to the ability of the group.
(*the available trials clothing is up to a maximum size of: Jersey :46″ chest, Pants: 40″ waist, Boots: EU50 and Helmet: 63cm circumference).
