Ultimate Off Road Day ( £250 )

Dakar legend Mick Extance and his team brings you the ultimate off-road motorcycling experience for the best possible price. Ride an amazing variety of trails, as you wind your way through and around 1,500 acres of beautiful Welsh forest in the heart of the stunning Berwyn Mountains.

If you love bikes and want to get down and dirty then this action filled day is right up your street.

Whether you’re new to the world of off road, a seasoned veteran, or even if you’ve never ridden a bike before in your life, our team of passionate and experienced instructors are ready to give you a day to remember. Don’t be put off by stories of giant off road bikes, we have a number of smaller bikes, perfect for those with a shorter inside leg measurement.

No matter what level you ride at, there’s plenty to challenge you and make sure you go home with a satisfied smile on your face and if this is your first time, we’re pretty confident you won’t want it to be your last. As if that wasn’t enough, we firmly believe that learning to ride an off-road bike can improve your road riding enormously.

The morning session provides an opportunity to get to grips with the basics. There’s lots of coaching along the way with plenty of challenges designed to build your confidence.

Your instructors will keep a close eye on you, making sure you are progressing nicely and are comfortable on your bike as you learn the trails and find out what the bikes are really made of.

After lunch, it’s time to put your new-found skills to the test and enjoy more great riding across our incredible venue.


Pictures taken from the day will be available for free on Facebook!

Our Ultimate Off Road Day location is situated deep in one of the most picturesque parts of Wales, close to the Shropshire border just outside the village of Llangynog, Powys. This tried and tested 1500 acre site, in the Rhyd Y Felin Forest offers fantastic offroad riding conditions, none of which is on public roads, so a UK motorcycle license is NOT needed to enjoy this truly, off road experience.

Your head instructor, Mick Extance, has a wealth of experience tucked under his still youthful belt!! Competing successfully at British, European and World Enduro Championship levels.
