New Horizons Motorcycle Training and Tours

Combining Motorbike Touring with Training

Month

July 2019

Friday fun!

When we go for a ride, whether it be to commute, for fun, training or to do daft things such as the Iron Butt challenge, we always take the acronymic approach below:

Consideration – for other road users
Respect – for the roads we use
Attitude – out to enjoy ourselves
Patience – there’s no rush, so have fun!

Not only does it help to make our ride smoother, but for me, more enjoyable! And it has a great acronym that is easy to remember too!

Have a great weekend, and remember C.R.A.P.

Back in the press!

Fame again! Back in the local press today. https://www.swindonadvertiser.co.uk/news/17768472.swindon-bikers-complete-cross-country-1-100-mile-race-time/

Note: we did have a rest in between going up and coming back down. Total riding time was 42 hours with a decent rest included.

And, there is still time to donate to the two worth causes we were riding for: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/peter-genet-2?utm_term=zk3y2gxXM

Images from a Lights For Learning trip that I went on showing how bright the lights are.




Me and Stuart at Land’s End – I know, its a little obvious!

Ps, as a point to clarify, we did not receive Iron Butt certificates at the end of the ride. We submit the evidence first, and then, if approved, we will be offered the chance to get a certificate. The ride adjudicator takes a sceptical view of the evidence, but fingers crossed.

Ride to the Alps – September

Join us for a ride to the Alps this September where we will enjoy some great roads, great scenery, good beer (of course) and some good banter too!

Cornering – Never follow the lead rider!

No crashing here, but this short clip shows what can happen when following the lead rider – we all do it and will continue to do so!

This was filmed up past Brora on the A9 en-route to John O’Groats.
