Don't take our word for it, here's some feedback from riders on the last gravel course

B Maroc

I really appreciated the opportunity to have errors in my riding identified and actioned. This was invaluable as I want to ride well, and consider feedback and improvements essential.

R Kennerley

I am not a Off-roader but now feel far more confidant about my ability to travel safely on gravel(or even mud) should the occasion arise.

C Jackson

Significantly improved my confidence and safety on gravel

S Dean

Great day, didn't realise how much fun you could have on a road bike on gravel. If someone riding for 18 months can have this much fun on a LAMS road bike on gravel, how many experienced riders are missing the thrill and simple skills of gravel road on a grown-ups road bike ?
