Training Events (Check Forum/Tracker for further information)
April:The Norfolk Weekend Residential Course.
Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th
For Associates this is a great opportunity for 3 days riding including ORs and feedback which will give your training a massive boost and set you up well for a test in the summer. It’s also a great way to get to know other members and swap stories and experiences.
Full Members are also welcome but priority will be given to Associates as this is primarily a training weekend. A fun filled 3 days of riding and socialising with your mates plus an opportunity for an OR or to follow an observer carrying out an OR. Information will be circulated closer to the event.
July:The Kent Weekend, Non Residential Training
Saturday 23rd & Sunday 24th
This weekend is aimed mainly at Associates and offers a great opportunity to condense a number of ORs into 2 days.
September:The Wales Weekend Residential Course
Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th
This allows for various training and group rides through the Brecon Beacons and the surrounding area with plenty of opportunity for ORs or social rides.
