Training

Ride Out Africa offers professional intermediate to advanced training courses. We focus on key aspects to improve your riding ability on irregular terrain.

Training is not aimed at beginner riders but rather designed to sharpen riding skills while teaching pro techniques preparing you for riding on different types of terrain.

Our intensive training course takes place at Jacobsdal and Louvain Guest Farm over the course of three days. We demonstrate and describe each technique in detail before trainees engage in the activity themselves.

Aspects covered during training:

  • Riding posture
  • Brake control
  • Speed control
  • Clutch throttle control
  • Riding with confidence in harsh terrain such as deep sand, rocky ground, steep, loose ascents and descents, water crossings, etc
  • General safety and bike maintenance

Our training is aimed at providing clients with in-depth knowledge of techniques and skills by sharing our combined years of experience with them.

You will be in the capable and expert hands of Chris Meyer & Nico Bester throughout your training.
