"Did the Bronze course. What a brilliant day!! Instructor used ear pieces to talk us through stages and give us tips as we rode. He also video'd us on different stretches of road looking at different skills. When we stopped he talked us through what we were doing. FANTASTIC!! If you're trying to decide whether or not to take advantage of the subsidy, I say DON'T WAIT."

Ellete P, Auckland

"The people presenting the course where clearly knowlegdable and were well able to communicate that knowledge. Their enthusiasm and interest in the subject showed."

John C - Auckland

"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

"I've done this kind of training many times for over the years. But still I had to get reminded tips for emergency braking. No matter how many years I have been riding, I should regularly participate in training to maintain my riding skill so that it becomes like second nature. I know how to do it but it is not necessary that I can do it when I need it if I don't practice"

Neko, Auckland

"The course was well structured and the methods used to deliver personalised feed back enabled me to make some significant improvements to my riding technique."

Tony K - Waikato

"This was a fantastic course - I had learnt more in one day that I have from all of my riding. It showed me how to mitigate and minimise risks when riding."

Bob N - Auckland

"I feel lucky that it was raining for our training day. Riding in wet weather used to be a major fear for me, now I'm much more confident in the rain. In fact, the raining part of the ride back from Puhoi to Orewa on the twisty roads was the most fun I've had on my bike."
