Off Road Motorcycle Schools Yorkshire???

Hey up everyone. Ive being trying to find some off road centres in yorkshire, in particular west yorkshire, so I can start having some fun in the mud on a sunday afternoon. Eventually id like to try a couple of rallies in late 2010, but I need somewhere to start off.


Ive consider the Trail Riders Fellowship but its not really what Im looking for, a decent trails park with instruction would be ideal.

Any info would be great

Cheers

i2i are based in Yorkshire, or at least heve training facilities in Yorkshire. i2imca Home Page

I know you said you don't fancy the TRF as it isn't what you are looking for, but West Yorkshire TRF are having a practice day on the 19th of December at the 4*4 centre in Tong. There isn't any instruction as such but there will be circuits marked out of varying difficulty, and there will be plenty of WYTRF members around that will offer advice if asked, they are a friendly bunch.

West Yorkshire Trail Riders Fellowship TRF if you are interested.

Tommy, The TRF is an ideal organisation to join, a wealth of knowledge, If you are near Keighley, try and hook-up with Chris Bright, Dazzer etc, and check out BMWGS.co.uk :: Index don't be fooled, very little to do with BMW's !

Speedway Tommy ? Have you ever tried it? Our Enduro club went on a try Speedway day, Riding one goes against everything you have ever been taught about motorcycle riding, out of about 12 of us there, 2 that 'slid off' and 1 that needed his wrist wiring up!
Other than that.........good fun.
