BMW Off Road Skills

From our 4,000-acre off-road paradise in South Wales, BMW Off Road Skills offers a world-renowned programme of two-day courses to develop riders from novices to confident off-roaders.

Focusing on developing confidence, bike handling and riding skills in conjunction, riders can experience the incredible off-road ability of our highly-capable range of BMW GS adventure bike from the novice-friendly F 750 GS, to the class-leading R 1250 GS. There are no insurance excesses to pay, no follow-up bills and no nasty surprises, so you can relax and focus on getting the most from the experience without any worries or hassle. Every course runs with a support vehicle carrying spares, refreshments, first aid kit, and spare bikes.

As your skills improve, we take in increasingly challenging trail rides, breaking each session up with detailed lessons on the various elements of off-road riding. Our instructors will advise and assist you every step of the way, helping you to progress from our Level One course through to the more advanced skills and techniques of Level Two and Level Three once you are ready.

When you’ve truly got the off-road riding bug, we have a range of off-road trips and adventures in Wales, Portugal, Australia, and Iceland.
