just wanted to thank you and the team for the course yesterday, it was enjoyable and picked the always useful information – specially as we are not old bikers,  older yes, but not old to biking.….. It’s just keeping it all there. Lol. We both felt the course was very good, I was probably more interested in the cornering and overtaking, but having said that it does also help to know what happens to the bike when you do certain things, so it was all extra information that I didn’t know.  Bill felt the same really, so sorry can’t give you any constructive criticism. Thank you all very much – a very nice day.

I cannot recommend this course enough. I ride through Pirbright bends everyday, and manage the corners competently with only the occasional “OMG” moment. I rode through them again today, putting my new knowledge into practice, and had a great ride – not just quicker, but I felt much more confident and more importantly, had the knowledge that if something did go wrong, I would know what to do. I had a great day yesterday, and I can’t thank you and the other volunteers enough, especially as there are so many of you willing to help us. It was a well run course, and you were all very generous in imparting your knowledge and experience with newer riders. I feel that all the feedback and tips will improve my riding, and it was really great to learn this in a safe environment. I hope to do the course again, to really cement these techniques into my everyday riding to make me a safer rider. Hopefully, next time, I can do it in bad weather – after all, this is England. All in all, the course was an absolute bargain when I think about what I gained in terms of knowledge and confidence, and I would have no hesitation in recommending the course to any rider.

Can I just say what a great morning it was, whilst I’m fairly confident in my bikes capabilities I wouldn’t have believed it was possible to ride around that course and learn new limits of lean whilst being smooth and feeling completely confident it would come out the other side…………..not forgetting that I was looking at where it was supposed to go. Absolutely brilliant….thanks
