Brilliant Fun This was so much fun. We did the more technical course on the larger bikes, splashing thought puddles, bouncing over tree roots and mud. Rich was a brilliant instructor, made the whole experience relaxed and fun. Always great when you do something like this and feel like you’ve had amazing value for money.
