Aimed specifically at motorcyclists we run introductory courses and off road experience days for riders of all levels of ability. We teach skills directly relevant to the challenges faced by expedition and adventure riders.
Many clients have told us they have attended other training organisations and been very uncomfortable with the group sizes, mixing of ability levels and speed of riding. Our speciality is training for individuals and pairs. We find this makes for a more enjoyable experience (especially for the more nervous rider) and allows clients the opportunity to really speak with and learn from their time with our experienced instructors. We are happy to run 1:1 training at no additional cost.
Trailquest offers training courses to suit the client’s individual requirements on a bespoke basis. However we find that the vast majority of clients are interested in the following set courses:
Introduction to Adventure Riding - £290
A one day course the Introduction to Adventure Riding course is designed to provide clients with skills and knowledge to confidently ride a large adventure bike on a range of off road trails. The course accurately reflects the types of terrain and conditions a client might encounter on a motorcycle expedition. It is suitable for those with little or no previous off road experience and is the most booked course we run.
Many of those attending have years of road riding experience but very few have much off road riding background and, of those that do, most come from the smaller trail bike world. Client feedback has been 100% positive and suggests that almost everyone learns something on the course.
Intermediate - £300
A very popular one day course open to all who have completed our Introductory Course. Usually run at our Malvern Adventure Centre the course takes clients into more challenging terrain and builds upon the skills and techniques covered on the Introductory Course.
Expedition Training Course - £300
Aimed at those planning their own trips abroad or taking part in expeditions run by others this course covers a range of expedition skills including survival skills, wild camping, First Aid, expedition security, navigation, bike preparation and other skills as required. The skills and experience of our instructors are crucial for the delivery of high standards of training.
Bespoke Training - Cost TBD
If our list of regular courses does not meet your needs, as mentioned above, we are more than happy to devise a course that is specific to your requirements. Please get in contact with us to discuss your options.
Bike / Riding Equipment Hire:
Often we find clients are keen to train using their own bikes. The standard adventure bike we provide is currently the Royal Enfield Himalayan. Light weight, very robust, reliable and easy to ride we have used them since they were first brought out . We have used many other bikes over the years but none has done the job required as well as the Royal Enfield Himalayan.
In view of the past Covid 19 pandemic and our revised general hygiene policy we are no longer hiring out clothing, boots or helmets. Clients are advised to bring their own riding gear.
