Off Route Adventures - Intro Riding Class - My Experience

Finally found a weekend to work on my riding skills with Tery @ Off Route Adventures. In summary, the weekend was time extremely well spent, and the cost was a bargain imo.

I asked myself one simple question after finishing, "Do I feel like I am better/more skilled rider today than I was two days ago"? The answer is an unequivocal yes.

Am I an expert rider as result? Hell no, but I picked up a playbook of many techniques to practice going forward to improve my riding & fun in the future and to do so safely.

We did cover many of the things one would imagine in a class; slow riding, braking, body positioning, balance, clutch/throttle control, etc etc. The thing I enjoyed the most was the real-world guidance offered when we hit a trail. Tery was constantly giving feedback, 'lean the bike more, get that knee in, up on the pegs, you want to have more weight over the front in this situation' and the like.

All in all, I highly recommend Tery's class!

Tery Glad you had a good experience! When he and I ride together, all I see is his roost! I'm still taller than him (not by much)
