Riding adventure bikes on gravel roads, beginner course. How to ride gravel roads

Adventure bike riding beginner (base) course. For those who want to open the adventure world and get the basic off-road skills

Places like Mongolia, Georgia, the Stans (Pamir Highway), Altay Mountains, Magadan and many other attract the adventure riders from all over the world. Moreover, if we are talking about Russia it is not even necessary to approach Magadan to get a proper off-road riding. There are so many decent gravel roads around Moscow area.

Most of the motorcycle riders with heavy bikes will find themselves in a very stressful situation while riding in such places, because an off-road experience is not the thing they have gained in an average driving school.

We have decided to change that and created a adventure bike riding training course in the Southern part of Russia - in Sochi Area.

This course is for those who:

  • Are interested in basics and skills of adventure riding down the varieties of unpaved roads (gravel, mud, sand, clay, aggregate etc.)
  • Are dreaming about opening a new off-road tourism experience
  • Want to improve their defensive driving skills and get some safe riding basics
  • Need to brush up their riding skills after a long non-riding winter season, doing it in unobtrusive and friendly atmosphere

Goals of the course recall the basic motorcycle riding skills, study an off-road riding theory and practice it under control of highly experienced instructors
