Enduro training in the Valdai national Park. Riding adventure bikes on gravel roads, beginner course

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

We did nine enduro training courses at Valday National Park in June-July of 2020 and that it is for now. Possible we will repeat them in 2021 in the same venue, but this is not confirmed.

Our next enduro courses are shceduled for September-November and March-May in Sochi. If you want to improve your riding skills and simply explore small part of Russia (South regions) thats nice option. You can see description our Enduro 1 and Enduro 2 coursers here - https://www.rusmototravel.com/training. Calendar with dates available here - https://www.rusmototravel.com/calendar

Dear Valday trainings participants - thank you very much for joining us, you are the best!!!

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 Valdai national Park.

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
