Classic Trail Challenges

Classic Trail Challenges from Oldknobblies

A unique experience to ride Classic Off Road Motorcycles on some of the most fantastic surrounding and scenic parts of Wales (Including the foothill of the Cumbrian Mountains and some of the routes of the famous 1983 ISDT) The aim is not for the Hard-core or Racers on the latest off road toys, we welcome the newcomers and these riders that years ago did stop off road, then now would like to re-experience green laning within a small group of like-minded people.

 

 

 

What we are offering :

  • Guided "Classic" Trail/Green laning Rides as per Packages Descriptions
  • We proud ourselves to be well-mannered and using only by-ways and legal right of way
  • From experienced riders to novices, we will accommofate the routes and the group
  • The package includes 3 days Trail Riding with your favourite Vinduro Bike (Bring a second one if you wish)
  • Small group of riders with 1-2 experienced guides
  • Superb settings at the farm, great food (Breakfasts and tasty 3 courses dinners)
  • Accommodation in our own independant Cottage (Shared Rooms)
  • Secured garage for our motorbikes
  • Powerwash and other helpful services
  • Prices may vary per month/dates, please see appropriate Package

 

What we ask and expect from you:

  • Prior to click your booking, please read carefully “the Terms & Conditions” and “Cancellation Policies”
  • Your motorcycle/s need to be road legal and insured. (Not too noisy and working lights) 
  • This is not a competition event, so be friendly and considerate, we may have some “Muddy/Deep puddles situations” or few mechanical niggles, we start and we all finish together!
  • Enjoy the ride! Whatever the weather
  • Bring along a good dose of humour and any old tales are welcome
  • Then relax, you know it will be a great little break, hopefully memorable, refresh a bit your riding techniques and make new friends ...priceless!
