Here are some of the things people have said after their first assessment ride.

T.M. August 2019

I felt a little bit apprehensive when I turned up but the moment I got off my bike I found the people around me very friendly. The conversation and support was what I needed. The more formal intro …. was very positive, constructive and informative, it really put me at my ease. My observer was knowledgeable and well informed, his advice and support was clear and helpful. His manner was friendly and constructive which made the assessment very enjoyable. His observations and practical tips were easy to put into my riding and I was surprised how much more comfortable my riding became as I took on board his suggestions. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and it has reinforced my desire to join and to progress to advanced riding.
