• Build on the skills learned in Level One GS
• Tackle more challenging trails and tracks
• Learn more advanced skills and techniques
Level Two starts with a warm-up trail ride, setting the scene for the two days – lots of riding between the lessons. The emphasis is not too technical or demanding, but is a step up from Level One. Observation and planning training will allow you to assess the coming challenges and deal with them. Whether this is changing direction, riding off-camber trails or adjusting your riding position; the instructors will help you develop your existing core skills and learn new techniques. As always at ORS, we aren’t just going to throw obstacles at you and expect you to deal with them. Our courses are heavily based around lessons followed by trail rides to put those lessons in to practice. With plenty of time in the saddle the course emphasis is on developing and bringing together your newly acquired techniques, and is a step up from Level One ensuring riders will be challenged and improved.
Level Two is designed to develop your enthusiasm into the confidence to use all the skills you have learned. By the end of day two you will know if you are ready for our advanced Level Three GS course.

• Advanced riding position
• Observation and planning
