ALPS RIDING ACADEMY.
Edelweiss Bike Travel is now offering an Alps Riding Academy in Italy, which is five days of training with instructor Christian Preining. Participants will learn to merge themselves with their motorcycle and their motorcycle with the road, weather and traffic in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. Topics covered include: how to brake in curves; finding a good line in blind corners; and braking downhill in the rain on slippery asphalt. Four training dates are scheduled for July and August 2014, with groups ranging from 3-6 people. Each session is seven days long with five training days. Prices, including motorcycle rental, start at $2,190 per person.
