Both the offer of the motorcycle market in terms of adventure vehicles, whether they are more or less road-going, or the training of the riders on their motorcycles or with those made available by the school, is growing rapidly.
The choice to rely on the hands of an expert to improve one’s driving technique becomes more and more frequent and in my opinion an excellent decision.
Even Yamaha takes the field, with his line dedicated to Adventure Touring and off-road, together with Daniele Madrigali and BLUE BIKE CAMP with various level driving courses and adventure tours (adventour) for YAMAHA motorcycles and more (motorcyclists with any brand will be accepted), with the availability of a fleet of XT1200Z Super Ténéré, for those who intend to rent them.
The objective of the school is to give maxi-enduro owners the driving technique to use their motorbikes also in off-road vehicles, becoming familiar with the “important” dimensions of their vehicles, with courses and exercises specifically studied. Participants will be able to discover or improve their off-road driving skills, then taking advantage of what they have learned in guided tours on routes suitable for adventure motorcycles, in safety and fun.
The scenario of this new off-road school will be the Alta Val Tidone, one of the lesser-known territories between the Piacenza valleys and therefore all to be discovered on two wheels. BLUE BIKE CAMP will work together with the Upper Val Tidone Municipality for the practice of off-road on its roads, in perfect harmony with the territory and with the aim of enhancing and promoting the tourist-landscape, cultural and gastronomic characteristics.
BLUE BIKE CAMP will be based on hospitality and training in the setting of the Borgo Lentino Mill, in Nibbiano (PC), a location of historical and cultural prestige, as well as located in a central position and easy to reach from the A21 motorway.
There will be 4 dates for basic level courses: 12 May, 15 June, 6 July and 7 September. The courses will be open to a maximum of 10 motorcyclists, who will be able to participate with their own motorcycles of each brand or using the YAMAHA XT1200Z Super Ténéré provided by the organization upon request.
The courses will be taught by expert instructors, champions of great off-road challenges of the past , ready to pass on their experience and their secrets to the participants. The course fee is € 250, the bike rental is € 150. The cost includes the driving course, a welcome coffee and a lunch with typical cuisine. BLUE BIKE CAMP will issue a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.
There will be 3 adventure tour routes offered, with increasing lengths and difficulties (from 70 to 130 km). A maximum of 10 motorcyclists will be held with two experienced and authorized guides for the purpose.
The departure will be from the base of the Mulino Borgo Lentino of Nibbiano, to head first towards the precious area of the Piacenza vineyards, to continue on magnificent dirt roads in the undergrowth until almost 1,500 meters of Monte Penice and, therefore, for a lunch break. Afterwards, through surprising and extremely beautiful natural scenarios, the routes will continue towards Val Trebbia passing through its “capital” Bobbio, to then return to the base camp.
The tours will take place the following day with respect to the days of the courses, to give also to those who have followed the course itself the opportunity to compete immediately with the lessons learned, through the use of the bike on real and enjoyable road routes in full freedom. The tour dates will be: June 16th, July 7th and September 8th. The cost of participation is € 100, the cost for renting the bike is € 150.
