"Had a great day, learnt that I'm not as bad at riding as I thought and got some great one on one time with Glenn. Of whom was so helpful and friendly. Rode home with so much more confidence. Would highly recommend this course to anyone!"

Kat W - Waikato

"Pro Rider courses are a must for me, at least a couple per year to help keep me sharp and make me aware of any sloppy habits I might be developing. I find the course contents and the instructors very helpful to me as an older,'born-again' rider. "

Andrew L - Thames

"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. "

Suzette D, Auckland

"Thoroughly enjoyed the day (Bronze) after 5 years off a bike. Helped with getting confidence back. Looking forward to doing the silver."

Mark G - Waikato

"I've been only riding for couple of weeks and the Bronze training gave me more confidence on the bike. Definitely will book another one."

Pawel - Auckland

"The skills taught are invaluable and I felt like I was in a safe and controlled environment to put these into practice. Language and demonstrations super easy to follow. Looking forward to next level."

Cathy A - Auckland

"This should be compulsory for all. ACC funded the day, 8 hours for $20 great value. If you have not taken the course you should."
