About Trailquest


We have been following all government updates carefully.

The current "lock down" and stay at home policy, the increase in Covid 19 cases in our area and the likelihood of future restrictions on movement means we are going to have to postpone ALL COURSES currently booked until later in the year. We will review the situation at the start of May and at regular intervals thereafter. No new bookings are being taken. When the situation improves booking priority will be given to those clients whose courses have been postponed.

Over sixteen years of operation we have never yet failed to run a course and all bookings will be run as soon as it is practical to do so and at a time which suits. We can even extend your booking into 2021 if that is what you wish.

Instead of running normal activities Trailquest will now be concentrating on supporting local emergency initiatives to assist with the management of the crisis.

Because we are postponing, rather than cancelling, we will not be issuing refunds at this stage. However, if you are unable to attend your course by the end of October this year we will issue a refund at that point. I am sure you will understand.

Who we are:
Established sixteen years ago Trailquest has a proven track record in the adventure travel world. Our team of friendly instructors have a wealth of experience, having participated and led adventurous motorcycle expeditions to remote regions throughout the world, ranging from the Arctic Circle to the Sahara, and from East Africa to the Himalayas.

What we do:
Using our knowledge of Off-road riding and our experience in adventurous travel, we offer training and support to anyone out there looking to have an adventure with their motorcycle. Day to day this involves running a selection of Off-road riding courses which are aimed at differing levels of riding ability and experience, and providing expedition consultancy to those preparing for long duration trips. We have in the past helped prepare and train several round the world expeditions, and numerous Trans Africa/Trans America expeditions. The team can do everything from simply evaluating and advising on a plan through to fully organising and preparing a team for an expedition.

On a regular basis we also devise and lead our own motorcycle expeditions to a range of diverse and challenging locations around the globe. Our expedition teams are usually made up of satisfied clients who have attended our off-road riding courses, met our friendly instructors and worked up an appetite for adventure riding!

Our Facilities :
The facilities available to Trailquest are extensive. Our main operating base is a private estate near Ledbury, Herefordshire. The 1200 acre estate is privately owned and Trailquest have exclusive use of the facility. Set in the Midlands it has easy access via the M5 / M50 motorways, a mainline railway station at Ledbury and a helicopter / light aircraft landing ground.

We also have access to a further 1000 acres of Forest Commission land near Hereford and several hundred acres of mountain terrain near Abergavenny in South Wales. Our diverse training areas allow us to provide training on all types of trails, with the intention of replicating the types of trails riders are likely to encounter on a real off road adventure.
