Alps Riding Academy 6AA

Italy

Let us tune your riding skills!

The alpine 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 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 corners with a wide radius?
  • What are the advantages and disadvantages of various cornering techniques?
  • 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 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 our training on different roads. The mountain roads offer us a variety of challenging tarmac and enable us 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 safer rider!

“After this extensive training, 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: sunshine, heavy rain and sometimes even snowstorms. At this training, you can bring along your partner! While you hone
your abilities, your partner can enjoy the services of the 4-star hotel and the stunning landscape.”
