Riding Academy Andalusia 6SA

Spain

Let us tune your riding skills!

The European mountain roads – you may have heard of them, seen pictures or have been here before. They are outstanding in their natural beauty and the mostly unspoilt connected network of countless dream roads. This region truly is “a riders’ paradise”; attracting bikers from all over! Yet, the beauty of it may soon change into challenge, especially for those riders who ride such mountainous terrain for the very first time and are confronted with unfamiliar local traffic rules. Switch-back turns, hairpins, narrow single lane roads – they are all great fun, if only you know how to safely ride them. Listening to our guests, we realized that many of our customers would appreciate an opportunity to ride in this unique surrounding while enhancing their riding skills at the same time. For this reason we have set up a number of 5 day training courses to assist riders at any skill level make their next motorcycle tour a relaxed one by taking the edge off the challenge. In the Alps or the Andalusian mountains, our RIDING ACADEMY does just that! We teach you about the most appropriate riding techniques; how to find a safe and fluid line, tailored to a challenging riding environment. At the end of the week you should feel more comfortable on your bike and look forward to the next challenging roads.

Did you ever ask yourself the following questions?

  • What’s the best cornering style for hairpins?
  • Which style for fast corners?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of various cornering styles?
  • How to brake in curves?
  • What is a good line in blind corners?
  • Which line in tight hairpins?
  • Which one on very narrow roads?
  • How to make sure not to run wide?
  • How to deal with decreasing radius curves?
  • How do I brake downhill in the rain on slippery asphalt?
  • How to deal with narrow, curvy, unlit tunnels?

After having completed the Alps Riding Academy you will know how to answer the above questions!

This is how it works:

We will start by practicing basic riding skills at low speeds, challenging balance and coordination, in a closed environment. Once on the ride, we will frequently change positions within the group. We will take day trips from our hotel, in addition to doing a two day excursion to further extend the variety of our road selections. The tour layout offers the very best variety of challenging tarmac, except for long straights. The different characteristics of the mountain roads along that extended training ride will enable you to thoroughly investigate the strengths of various riding techniques. Extremely technical mountain pass roads with tight switchbacks will favour an approach quite different from that required by sweeping curves.


Become a better and safe rider!

“After this extensive clinic you will look forward to every narrow and twisty pass road, and will enjoy it to the utmost. Edelweiss‘ Riding Academy instructors have hundreds of riding day experience in the mountains, by all weather conditions, in sunshine, heavy rain and sometimes even snowstorms. At this training you can bring your partner along! While you hone
your abilities, your partner can enjoy the services of the 4-star hotel and the stunning landscape.”
