Then after a home-cooked lunch in our canteen, head out on the bountiful trails of South Devon putting your new-found skills to practice. Starting on gentle green lanes, we will teach you the techniques required to start tackling some harder terrain as the ride progresses. We promise – this’ll be the most fun you’ve ever had on a bike!

Looking for the ultimate training course? Why not book on to our Road to Off-Road with Troy Corser on 24 October 2013.

Spend the day with the legend himself, learning the techniques that brought him two world titles. Find out more here
