Training and RiverHead Forest Roads

TRAINING  at RiverHead Forest -  and we hosted our very first Level 1 Session for the NEW Season.  We geared our Session around those wanting that more technique approach to the riding and exploring that is metal roads.  Our venue just perfect for this.  With the total fire ban Auckland wide we tailored our first Session around a very small area of varying forestry road surfaces.  Our focus this Season is to host smaller group trainings, so to be able to offer to our participants that little bit more one on one time with our instructors.  With such an amazing response for our first intake, we needed to host two sessions to adequately cater for everyone on this basis.  

Group 1 arrives ready to begin our mng session
 Early 7am Saturday mng had arrived, and our first group met us anxiously roadside.  It was lovely to be presented with nice cool temperatures at this early hour.  Very pleasant.  With so very much to cover over our day,  this cooler start was well received.   The hours quickly wore on, and it soon became apparent that the sun was going to make her most overwhelming appearance,  and layers were quickly being peeled off.   Thanks to our helpers over the day,  excellent to have the support of a great skilled team of NGARNZ adventure riders.  Thanks to all of those who tirelessly assisted over the course of this training day.  It all combined together to make for an excellent day.

Group 2 Reports 1pm - and The Sun is Bearing Down Upon Everyone
WE promise you that upon opening this link below,  you will be treated to a little humour from one of our budding camera attendees!!!

As we are currently facing a "FIRE BAN" Auckland wide, we will commence to host our Level 1 "OFF the beaten Road" Adventure Course,  where we will break down a series of tracks/trails/ruts and detail these.  You will face a series of roads over your DAY, and we will rotate you between various course exercises, so to keep the group moving throughout.  This course will be made up of theory and also practical.  One goes hand in hand with the other.

Along with this "NEW Concept",  we will shortly also host a SAND Riding Practise Day, all of these courses will be suitable for our BIG ADVENTURE Bikes.  Jim D  will personally set these up.  As you can see below,  we are now offering a raft of "NEW" and exciting terrain to be tackled.  Upskilling is invaluable to be able to tackle all terrain surfaces that may be presented to you when YOU are "OUT and ABOUT":.  You never know what lies down the bottom of that Dead End road;  and knowing our Adventure Riders,  we feel sure you will go find out!!!
