20 places, First booked - first served. 

 

 

This course has hand outs

Certificates will be given to attendees.

We will cover the various dynamics from :-

What to take,

what to pack,

what the basic methodology is about mass distribution.

unbalanced mass = uneven tyre wear = sore lower back, sore neck.

We look at the principles of loading the bike and yourself, and the approach to deciding what must go, and how much.

Avoid intense frustration due to poor packing principles.

Come learn from the team that adventure rides on multiple day and day rides out into the wilds.

Simple is best,

Less is more

Reminder, bring your camera or use phone camera to capture the displays of items, ideas and techniques.

 

You can enjoy the snacks and refreshments while we do the training, as we stand around the display and the bike in this interactive session.

 

Once you actually see and understand the principles, you will be amazed at the scope left for personal choice left to you.

You can also look at the application of the principles on your own bike and see how the choices of gear type will fit your activities best.

 

Share your experiences,  listen to those of others and avoid the mistakes made by thousands.

Thank you Andy for a hugely informative and detailed discussion on this matter - your expertise and knowledge is of immense value to us all. We sincerely appreciate your time and effort not only for this event but also for everything you do for the club. Many participants may not know that you landed in Cape Town at 17h00 after spending a week on business in Bangladesh and you were at the venue at 18h00, fully prepared - how's that for commitment.

Many thanks again.
