"This is an good course for riders with experience it underlines any weakness you did not know you had, I would suggest do Bronze no matter how good you think you are it will find the weakness before the silver and save the embarassment, I am going to do a Bronze then silver again"

Simeon H - Auckland

"This was the single most valuable course of any description I have ever done. It should be absolutely compulsory for all riders."

Mark C - Auckland

"One of the best and most useful courses I have been to since getting on the bike. Awesome Instructors - the information was clear and precise, its all on to us know to digest that and put into practice to become safe riders and most of all enjoy riding."

Ron M - Auckland

"These courses are excellent. They build skills progressively and whilst you come away feeling positive about your progress you also become aware of how much there is to learn and how far you have to go!"

Brian H - Auckland

"I was nervous before the day started but once we got going I felt my nerves fade. I applied the new skills learnt and was very surprised that as the day progressed, my confidence level grew and how comfortable I became. I feel more in tune with my bike and feel that I could handle whatever urban and open road environment could throw my way. These courses is a must to upskill and give yourself the best chance to ride for life."

Naritasha R - Auckland

"Great course, skillfully tailored to the participants. I'm recommending it to all the riders I know"

"Coming away from this course has given me so much more confidence. I now have a new updated skill base and I am learning to trust in my bike. Once I learn to apply these skills my bike will do the job that it is designed to do. "
