Do you have one of these popular and exciting motorcycles?


Do you want to ‘Live the Dream’ of Adventure Motorcycling?


Seen the DVD ‘Long Way Round’ or ‘Long Way Down’?


Want to know how to get started?



We offer ‘Trail riding’ in Derbyshire for those with little or no off road experience.


A trip tailored specifically at this market, with like-minded individuals wanting to venture out and explore the potential of themselves and their motorcycle.


Set in the beautiful Peak District, you will ‘Trail Ride’ on routes appropriately graded to suit your ability.


With a maximum of 6 in the group, learn the basic techniques to riding ‘Off Road’. Deal with loose surfaces, ruts, muddy lanes, rocky trails, open grassland and ford crossings.


There’s the option to stay in local accommodation in the Peak District, bring your partners, they can enjoy a weekend sight seeing or browsing the local Towns of Ashbourne, Bakewell or Buxton while you are riding, then meet up in the evenings and share your experiences.





Will be about setting the scene. Coaching on technique and familiarisation of the varied terrain. Emphasis will be on building confidence in your own ability and realising that this is what the motorcycle was designed for.



Will be based on a tour around Derbyshire pulling in a variety of lanes and tracks. Building on the previous day it’s all about you really enjoying the Off Road experience.


All this with the knowledge of constant support of 2 guides, who’ll lead the group, provide coaching and a back up recovery plan, should it be required.
