Get More From Your Biking!
Our Mission is to help you build the skills and confidence to get more from your biking. By using the right tools you’ll be in better control of your time and space, and have more fun.
At Peak Rider you will find lesson content and instruction tailored specifically to your needs. All you need to do is let us know what you would like to achieve.
• Are you a born-again biker showing a bit of rust?
• Do you sometimes feel that you are not completely in control?
• Is there a particular aspect of your riding, e.g. bends or traffic, where you lack confidence?
• Would you like to learn how to make smoother, more efficient and safer progress?
• Are you a confident rider who wants to raise your game to a higher level?
Your requirements will form the basis of a personalised action plan designed to help realise your goals. All you need is your own bike, a valid motorcycle license and a positive attitude towards lifelong learning.
With our help you will acquire and develop enhanced skills to improve your situation control and make more efficient progress. You’ll learn about hazard management, gain important survival skills and become a more competent and confident rider.
We’re certain you’ll find our relaxed coaching-style approach to training works for you. Let’s get started. Get in touch with us today: email@example.com
The Peak Rider Roadcraft Workshop is an interactive one-day seminar originally developed by us for the US military. Course content is the same and valid for all riders with each presentation tailored to the specific group of participants.
We begin by looking at our motivations to ride – and why that’s important – before continuing with a detailed examination of hazards and vulnerabilities.
The second part of the presentation outlines how to create a safe and progressive ride using the Roadcraft system of motorcycle control, the basis for police rider training in Great Britain.
We show you the best path to situation control – making sure you always have sufficient time to react to hazards. Although the workshop is not about learning how to ‘go fast’ it will definitely help those riders who may be wary of making efficient progress when speed limits and road conditions permit.
Rather than focus on bike handling skills – such as closed-course slaloms or road-racing derived techniques – we show why a rider’s mindset is by far the most important element for safe and proficient riding.
In the workshop you will learn that by applying a systematic approach you can consistently find the ideal balance between safety and enjoyment in your everyday riding. It’s easily the most important thing we’ve learned in over 40 year of riding experience and we want to share it with you. We’ll give you the right tools for replacing uncertainty with confidence and competence, and help you avoid making potentially costly riding errors.

“I have ridden bikes now for over 12 years, but the ERS course still helped me improve my riding further. The level of detail provided in my rider assessment was astounding, and in some cases eye opening. Many thanks Mike on being such a patient teacher and brilliant assessor.”
“I had a great day out with Mike. His tuition and guidance, delivered in his calm, patient and professional way really helped make the day one to be recommended. His instructive suggestions have made a big difference not only to my understanding of motorcycling but also, more importantly, to my ability to ride more safely, efficiently and enjoyably. I could feel the improvements kicking in as we progressed through the day and am convinced what was said will stay with me. Thanks Mike!”
“Shortly after passing my bike test, my partner and I arranged a skills training day with Mike – this day proved invaluable. Being a female in a predominately male sport, Mike made me feel at complete ease; he is able to work with you at whatever level skills you have and at any pace. He was always very supportive and encouraging, with an emphasis on fun, which allowed me to progress and develop the basic skills I had when I had passed. Since this time, I have booked a number of days out with Mike – you can actually feel the difference in your riding skills and capabilities after a day out with him. I would recommend Mike and Peak Rider Training to anyone and at any ability.”
“Having ridden bikes pretty much daily for 30 years, the time I spent with Mike was the first road based rider training I had ever done. By the end of the day my riding was much smoother and less aggressive. I found I was making better progress on unfamiliar roads than on roads which I thought I knew well. In all, a great day’s biking. Mike is informative and entertaining, and what he is teaching you is to enjoy your riding more and that can never be a bad thing!”
“I was, without doubt, a confident veteran and didn’t really think there would be much on offer for someone like me who had ridden for years. How wrong can you be! Mikes ability to involve me in the thought processes required while riding, as well as his friendly style and willingness to debate issues that I did not necessarily agree with, made for a great training session. I became a far smoother and safer rider than I would ever have thought possible. His follow up and ride-outs, which I intend to do more of this year, are just icing on the cake.”
“Having only had training way back in the early ’80s, when the pinnacle of safety was the wearing of a donkey jacket, I felt it was time to understand how I could improve on three decades of bad habits. It didn’t take Mike long to highlight a couple of aspects of my riding style that might not have been as good as I thought. The improvement in my road positioning, awareness of hazard, and control of my bike was stunning. Despite my reservations the time spent in training will definitely remain as memories of some of the best times sat in the saddle. Years of experience show through in Mike’s calm, structured, and good humoured communication.”
