The Yamaha Offroad Experience is based near the Mid Wales town of Llanidloes. Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham and Cardiff airports are all approx 100 miles from our base.
Our base is 5 miles outside of Llanidloes which can be found just off the main A470 road. We have our own 600 acre farm which backs onto the magnificent ten thousand acre Hafren Forest and Sweet Lamb motorsport complex which make up our vast riding areas.
The Yamaha Offroad Experience as it is now known, was formerly known as the Geraint Jones Enduro School. Geraint who is a former multiple British Enduro Champion and legend of the sport started running enduro training schools back in the mid 80’s, and we became known as the Yamaha Offroad Experience in 1994 when Yamaha came on board, and have been involved with us to this day.
Our aim is to offer something for everyone, an off road tryout for a complete novice who wishes to experience what offroad riding is all about, to top level national enduro riders who want help to improve their skills and take them to the next level. We have a variety of terrain, from farmland and open hill to the Hafren forest where most of the riding takes place. This is enduro heaven and has staged British, European and World Enduro Championshp events over the past 10 years. It has everything you would expect from a Welsh forest, from rocky tracks, tricky assents and descents, bogs, ruts and easy gravel paths and fireroads.
The Tenere Experience days cover a larger area, also taking in the Tarenig forestry block, country roads and the green lanes around Mid Wales, which are perfect for adventure bike riding.
