Adventure bikes are great but where do you get to use them to their full potential. Not the A4 flyover, that’s for sure.
Adventure riding’s popularity is at an all-time high, so it’s no surprise that there are plenty of adventure riding schools out there for you to practice your skills.
It doesn’t matter if you’re new to biking or a bit of a veteran, adventure training is a great way to improve your bike handling skills, control and confidence.
You can take your own bike (g’wan it won’t melt if it gets dirt on it) or lots of the schools will rent you a bike for the day too. Schools are located in some of the most picturesque parts of the UK, from Wales to Scotland and there are even some in the home counties, making it accessible for Londoners after a fresh air fix.
