Advanced Riding Training Tours

As part of our commitment to help riders get the most from their riding, as well as helping them improve their riding skills we run a couple of extra special events each year – our “Training Tours”.

These include stays in good quality hotel(s) in the heart of spectacular riding country, where we will relax in the evenings reflecting on the day’s riding over dinner and drinks.

Anatomy of a Training Tour

Before the tour we hold an online participants’ meeting, where you will get to meet your fellow riders as well as allowing us chance to run through the structure of the tour in more detail. Prior to the meeting we will have issued a “Participant’s Guide” which provides full details of the tour and how it operates.

We provide participants with their own “route notes” and GPS route files including waypoints for our re-group points, so we don’t need to ride as one big group. This allows riders to ride at their own pace in small groups or on their own, and to focus on their own riding rather than trying to keep up with others.

During the day, our instructor(s) will provide individual coaching sessions, helping each rider put the advanced riding theory into practice. At each regroup point the instructor will provide feedback to help riders further develop their skills as they continue the journey, before swapping to coach another rider.

In the evening there will also be a short re-cap of the day’s ride and the key learning points from the day, before we head out for dinner and a relaxing drink. Throughout the evening, our instructor(s) will also be om hand to discuss any aspect of the day’s ride.

After a hearty breakfast the next day begins with a pre-ride briefing before repeating the process above – and with a route chosen for its scenic beauty as well as its great roads the riding is bound to be enjoyable as well as educational!

When the tour is over, we will send you an individual riding report, outlining the key learning points from the tour, as a reminder of what you have learnt and making suggestions for further improvement.

2022 Training Tours

We are delighted to announce that 2022 will see us resume our ever-popular Training Tours, with 2 very different tours planned.The first is a 3-day tour that takes in the best roads in mid and north Wales – I know they’re the best roads because I’ve spent the last 2 years riding around Wales whenever I got the chance! The second is a longer, 5-day, tour around the highlands and islands of Scotland, again taking in some epic roads, including the infamous “Pass of the Cattle” to Applecross and the best bits of the NC500!

Details can be found at the links below, but be quick and book as places are strictly limited to 8 bikes (pillions welcome!):

To book your place on either tour, or for more information, call Paul on 07747 761059 or email now!

2020 and 2021 Training Tours

Due to Coronavirus, all 2020 and 2021 Training Tours have been cancelled. We are currently reviewing plans for a programme of tours in 2022 and will post details when we can be sure that such tours will proceed.

In the meantime, stay safe and well!

2019 Training Tours

Since closing the learner training part of the Inner Circle Training business, Paul has decided to take some time out to go traveling. As he will be heading off to Eastern Europe on his bike from April to July, then to Africa to support a Globebusters tour throughout August and September before heading off with Tracy to Australia for 3 months, there will be no Training Tours in 2019!

We hope to be able to run a full programme of tours in 2020 (but couldn’t due to Coronavirus)!
