Riding Schools at Highland Park!
Great for anyone that already knows how to ride, but wants to improve their skills. These courses are designed to help you master the skills needed for better and more confident riding, and that makes riding more fun!
Ladies "Spa Day"
"Spa Day" has become one of the favorite free riding schools with the ladies, no we're not talking manicures and pedicures, we're talking dirtbike riding! It's no secret that Paul has a sweet spot for the ladies, so this day is set aside just for them, and is a great opportunity to meet other female riders who all share the same interest. Some great friendships have evolved from this class!
The girls get to learn in an environment that is controlled and comfortable to them, and at the end of their session, they motor off with the confidence needed to be better riders, and motivation to get out on the trails using their new skills. Paul tries to cover different skills at every class, could be anything from jumps, to brake sliding, turns, hills, log crossings, etc. And most times, he touches on more than just one skill in a class.
Spa Days are usually the 2nd Saturday of every other month, and free with a normal days ride pass. Please call the office to make sure it's still "on schedule" if you are planning to attend, sometimes they have to be moved due to scheduling conflicts with other events. Some basic skills are required for this class, such as adequate throttle/clutch control and braking.
Private Riding Instruction
The advantage to private instruction is how much you will learn and how fast you will learn in a short period of time with one-on-one instruction and experienced coaching. We know how to increase your skill and confidence, beginner to seasoned racer, and our instruction is done by very well experienced riders/racers that know how to explain and teach riding skills. We can teach a complete beginner how to ride, or we can help riders with the basics, concentrate on problem areas, get your speed up, or teach your wife, husband, and kids.
Private Riding Instruction is available beginner to expert, $85/hr, two hour minimum, and a second student can be added for just $39/hr. We discount the hourly rate to $29/hr for the third or fourth student to accommodate families or friends that would like to learn as a group. We have found that 3 hours is perfect for most people, or 4 hours split between 2 hours in the morning, a break for lunch, and 2 hours in the afternoon. There is a decreasing return on your instruction investment after 4 hours. If you want more than 4 hours in one day, we can discuss that to see if in your individual case more hours will work well.
Considering the amount of time and money you will likely spend riding/racing this year, some expert coaching will be just a drop in the bucket, but it will certainly be some of the best time and money you can spend. Learning correct body position and proven riding skills will make your riding much more fun and you will have a lot more confidence. Our instructors stay pretty busy, so please call well in advance to schedule.
