These training days are designed for riders who wish to improve their riding skills and have them assessed with a view to taking some form of advanced riding certificate (IaM, RoSPA or DIAmond).

This is a full days training (usually 150 miles+). The day starts with an assessment of your current riding experience and skills. You will have the opportunity to highlight the areas of riding that you would like to address. Followed by a brief chat to discuss road craft.

This day is totally tailored to the individual student’s skills and abilities.

On your first ride your instructor will follow you to assess your current on road skills and hazard perception in a variety of situations; from urban riding to A roads, dual-carriageways and motorways.

A debriefing will follow with the instructor highlighting his observations on the ride. The instructor will then lead the ride demonstrating the correct techniques for the previously discussed scenarios. What follows after lunch will depend entirely upon what went before and the remainder of the day will be spent honing your new found skills.
