Off Road Riding Class and trail ride. N Calif

Recommended Posts

Below is the text from an email I received from Dave. He has posted this on Dirtrider.net & RMD. I asked him if he'd like me to post this over here.

I took Dave's class at Downieville last September and highly recommend this for anyone looking to improve their riding. I know RetSenior (KTM forum) has taken this class - different class/location - as well and we both felt that it was well worth the time & money. Dave is an excellent instructor and he will challenge you. OK, he kicked my ass during the two days. I'm a C rider and proud of it :) I like a challenge and this was it. I don't know how the new area will compare to Downieville but I'm sure it will be some of the most challenging single track you have seen. My biggest problem was my utter lack of conditioning - I was sucking wind most of the time. If Dave says the trails are tight & technical you better be prepared.... The only time I've fouled a plug on my WR was during Dave's class.

The non-riding parts of the weekend should be a great time as well. What could be more fun than hanging out with a bunch dirtbikers?

I will be in Germany the weekend of June 29/30 - otherwise I would already have a check in the mail. Dave mentioned that if there is enough interest he might be able to add more classes....



I have been asked several times if I would be doing any more classes this year. The answer is YES! The place is new and I assure those of you who enjoy technical and challenging single track trails will love this area. Please help me promote the class, I rely on the referals of riders who have attended ride/classes with me.

I have included the following information in a Microsoft Word version if you would like to print out and encourage your riding buddies to join us on June 29 & 30. We will be doin a special class for woman riders on August 10 & 11. If your wifes or girlfriends would like to improve there riding skills please bring this class to there attention.
