**** course starting May 23 and 24 2015***
Rally Raid Canada Adventure Course – Two day adventure riding course in Duncan BC.
The course is as the British would say focused on “the Big Trailies”.
It is designed for the beginner to intermediate adventure rider, I go over everything from proper riding position to picking up your bike.
Day 1: We work on technique.
Day 2: is usually a refresher of day 1 before heading out on a 4 to 5 hour adventure ride.
The riders who gain the most from my course are riders who have street riding experience and now want to take their riding to a new level.
(If you have a lot of off road dirt bike experience then this may not be the course for you.)
We are not a learn to ride course you must be able to ride a motorcycle to benefit from this course.
If your goal is to explore on your bike then this is the course for you.

My thanks to you for sharing your expertise in a way that was practical and effective. In no other way could I have learned what I did.
My reluctance to try some of the obstacles was entirely based on my level of fatigue – which was a reflection of my fitness. Next time I’ll be in better shape. Having said that, perhaps a topic you might explore with your students is how to recognize fatigue and how to deal with it – what to refocus on. Your Dakar experiences will have made you expert on this. Not to try to bring us to your level, but to share some of your experiences and concepts.
Thanks again to you and Natalie for your hospitality.
