Observed Rides (2010-15)

Test Passes (2015)

Just wanted to thank everyone involved on the Look, Lean and Roll course yesterday. Even though I know about counter-steering and have been practising Look, Lean and Roll myself during the Observer rides, the ability to listen to the trainers and practise it in a safe environment was invaluable. I learnt so much and gained a huge amount of confidence in both my cornering ability and my bike. Probably the best £40 I have spent on biking and I’ll be doing it every spring after dodgy winter riding to keep my skills honed. Thanks again – really appreciate everyone giving up their morning to help organise and run the course,

I wanted to just say a big thank you for yesterday.  The observers that helped out on the course were amazing.  I had to face a few demons to get through the day, but however hard that may have been I would rather do it in a controlled environment that on the road!   The observers, especially Trevor, were amazing at being patient, giving feedback and building confidence. Thanks so much for the time you and your team put in.

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.
