Off Road School
|Brand:||High Desert Adventures|
This off-road class will be approximately 4 hours in length. We will begin at Swartz Canyon, just outside of Prineville about 15 minutes or so. There is ample parking there and a great location for all the things we will be covering during the training. You can truck / trailer out to this location or ride from the hotel if you are staying in town Thursday night.
Lunch will be provided, typically a variety of sub sandwiches from Subway or the like.
There will also be plenty of water and Gatorade to keep you hydrated during the training and a cold beverage at the end of the day.... so don't worry about packing a cooler. We will have a couple of EZ-UP tents set up and tools on hand for any adjustments you might want to make to your bike. The goal of the training is to improve on your current skill-set and make you a better overall off-road rider.
