A big hill is no reason to turn around and head back home. In the Enduro Skills course, you’ll learn how to control the throttle to move the bike up a steep incline with limited traction. Once at the top, ride down at a smooth pace by using the clutch and brakes together. Our hills are lined up in succession, so learning this exercise is about both smoothness and overall riding confidence.

At the end of the Enduro Skills course, we’ll encourage some friendly competition in the sand and dirt. Traverse through water, turn on loose gravel, and keep your balance through muddy earth. Come away with dirty gear, new riding ability and the knowledge that you’ll be able to safely go to a lot more places with your bike.
