BMW Off Road Skills is truly unique: we run a comprehensive range of courses, experiences and tours like no other. We are proud to have met and taught thousands of happy customers – including Ewan and Charley from the Long Way Round and, more recently, the Fifth Gear team.
Headed up by legendary seven-time Dakar racer Simon Pavey, BMW Off Road Skills is celebrating its 12th anniversary in 2012 and this year we have more courses, dates and trips than ever! You'll find us in the best off-road riding location in the whole of the UK: the Brecon Beacons in South Wales.
We offer a carefully planned and well-tested syllabus to develop riders from novices to two-wheeled heroes. There's an emphasis on learning at the same time as having fun. Now, that may sound a little bit like being back at school, but this school doesn't have desks, it has a fleet of the latest BMW adventure bikes and for our playground we have the world-class Walters Arena and the stunning Brecon Beacons National Park!
Our Level One, Two and Three courses have been created and refined to develop riders from eager novices to mud-loving off-road experts. Each two-day experience is carefully-planned and managed by our friendly, experienced instructors to keep you motivated, learning and, most importantly, having fun. By the end of the course you won't just have a lot of happy memories - you'll be a much more skilled, confident and experienced off-road rider. You may be surprised how much this will improve your riding on the road, too!
There are also adventures in the Brecon Beacons, Australia and Portugal, as well as our ever popular Adventure Maintenance course for teaching you the skills to keep your bike on the road. In 2013, we have more courses, dates and trips than ever before!
BMW Off Road Skills has a course for every level and style of rider. When are you coming to visit us for yours?
