Chomping at the bit to go out and use the skills and confidence you’ve built up on our courses? Then it’s time to get out on a proper off-road adventure.
Brecon Beacons Adventure is the best way to apply all your hard-earned skills gained on our training courses. It’s the perfect way to use your knowledge while travelling across the beautiful terrain of the Brecon Beacons in Wales. Forget preparing a bike, planning routes and arranging accommodation – all you’ll need is your motorcycle license, an overnight bag and a hunger for great riding.
Starting at the BMW Off Road Skills HQ, you’ll ride one of our BMW GS adventure bikes north into the Brecon Beacons. Our route covers muddy lanes, open moorland, private forestry and a few off-road surprises for a non-stop (well, aside from lunch and refreshments) adventure. With exclusive forestry riding to finish the day, we head for a hearty meal and comfy bed, via a few stories in the bar.
Fortified for day two, we return south, through the forest again and onto flowing lanes before the final stretch, swooping over the breath-taking open moorland and onto our favourite strip of tarmac; the Old Trecastle road.
This trip is ideal for those who have confidently completed a BMW Off Road Skills Level One riding course, or have a similar level of experience, as some sections can be tricky for novices or nervous riders.
