It doesn't matter if you are new to off-road, if you haven't been on a bike in a long time, or if you are a seasoned rider searching to do a full training from scratch, our Level 1 training is suited for everyone!
Covering topics such as:
- Correct body positioning seating and standing
- Understanding bike setup and ergonomics
- Safety drills
- Balance drills
- Clutch and brake control
Our Level 1 training is more than just pushing information and giving you exercises.
Divided over TWO DAY TRAINING, our curriculum will allow you to not only perform the exercises, but also for you to understand why they are necessary, and what can go wrong when the right techniques are not applied.
Using several real-life examples, as well as clear explanations based on human motricity and behavior, as well as ergonomics, you will learn all we have to teach you in a way you will never forget it!
Level 1 training takes place in our Enduro Camp with liaisons off-road from the hotel to the Camp.
This training can be attended by everyone with a dual-sport, adventure or even light touring bike such as the CB500X for instance. If you are unclear if your bike is suited for this training, please ask us before signing in.
As far as tires are concerned, we strongly recommend a 50-50 tire, with no need for seriously knobbies.
Our Level 1 training values are for two full training days from 09:00 to 16:00 at our Enduro Camp facility in the Alentejo.
The value also includes:
- Two lunches
- Water, and snacks during the class
- Experient and certified Enduro instructor
Our class does NOT include:
- Sleeping arrangements, although we can recommend a hotel we work with
- Dinner and breakfast, possible to have in the hotel as part of their service
- Bike rentals. We do not rent or arrange bikes for trainings at this point.
- Personal accident insurance for the training days
As with all our trainings, if you have any questions you would like to see answered before booking your training, send us an e-mail and we will be more than happy to help!
As long as the weather allows, we work all year round. So just book a class and we will get in touch to find a suitable date for you. If you prefer, you can also get in touch with us beforehand by email to check for free dates.
Group classes are usually of up to 6 riders. If you have your own group of more than 6, please get in touch.
Check our available dates, and if there are no available dates when you want/need them, get in touch with us.
There is nothing worst than having a class to learn something, just to realize you and your instructor cannot understand each other. We know, we have been there, both as instructors and students.
With this in mind, we decided to stick to what we know down to the core, so our classes are hosted in both Portuguese and/or English.
Everything has rules, and our trainings and tours are no different, so let's go over what you need to know to attend this training.
- At least a 50-50 tire, designated as is by its respective manufacturer ( recommend)
- An integral helmet that is not modular
- Protection gloves
- A suit or assorted protections capable of protecting your back, upper and lower members
- A mid-calf or full-calf boot, preferentially, off-road biased
If you have any doubts about the gear or tires, let us know before you sign up for the class, as our instructors and guides have the right to refuse your participation in any of our activities, without reimbursement, if you do not present yourself with the minimum required safety gear.
As far as gas is concerned, it is important that you know that our Enduro Camp is 15 minutes away from the closest gas station and that we do not store extra gasoline on the camp.
This means that it is your responsibility to arrive with a full tank, or enough for at least 100kms or 60miles before the start of any activity.
The minimum quantity of fuel may vary depending on the activity, but it will always be disclosed to you beforehand.
Even though we are always flexible, due to the distance of the gas station, and out of respect for the instructors and the remaining participants, we generally cannot delay the start of any activity due to any participant's lack of fuel, the same way that there is no guarantee that any staff member will be available to escort you to the fuel station.
So get your bike fueled up, get your gear on, and come enjoy this incredible training!

Fantastic course, Ze´ waiting at the entrance on time. Quick ride down a dirt road to the training venue and we started.
The theory training was excellent with some great pointers making the practical training easier.
I did not believe that I would be able to turn such a large, heavy bike (Tiger 1200 Pro) around in such a tight circle but to my amazement I could!
The ride around the reservoir was fun putting some of the training into practice.
Yes, I did fall off and damage my shoulder (bike okay) which put an end to day 2 of the training but I´m really looking forward to continuing and will book anther course for the cooler months.
Thanks Ze´, fantastic training and see you in a couple of months.
Queres aprender o porquê das técnicas e a estares mais à vontade com a tua bigtrail, então este é o sítio certo! O Zé foi incansável nas explicações, nas demonstrações e na hora de praticares é o primeiro a motivar-te a fazer mais e melhor! Fiquei muito agradada com a experiência e recomendo completamente :)
