The Intro Beginner Course is a scaled-down version of the 2-day Intro to Adventure training program offered at the Rawhyde facilities in California and Colorado.  Riders with no past experience with riding off-road or those looking to significantly increase their comfort off-road will benefit tremendously from the skills taught during this course.  

The course will cover the top five mistakes all street riders make in the dirt as well as teach you a series of "building-block" skills that will get you comfortable with the basics of riding the dirt roads of the world. 

Topics covered include 

  • Body position for effective off-road riding 
  • Throttle, brake, and clutch techniques (requires more finesse than street riding). 
  • Weight-shift techniques for steering. 
  • Balance techniques 
  • Turning technique using counterbalancing. 
  • Obstacle avoidance. 
  • How to control front and rear wheel skids. 

We may also cover the following areas during the course in the morning or during the guided off-road ride in the afternoon

  • Hard acceleration technique on dirt and gravel. 
  • Hill climbing & traction control. 
  • Descending steep hills in a controlled manner. 
  • How to recover from a stall on a steep hill. 
  • How to turn around, fully loaded on a steep hill.

The cost of the program is $295 and includes 4 hours of instruction in the morning followed by a guided off-road ride that enables you to put your skills to use.  At the end of the day, celebrate your accomplishments with a refreshment in the Beer Garden.
