The Sweet Lamb centre has been around for a long while, often frequented by rally car drivers for it has miles of private gravel roads that are just perfect for their high-speed antics. But these roads, plus the rolling hills (mountains in fact) and sheer scale of this place (yes, 6600 acres) also make it an adventure bike mecca.

There’s now a brand new welcoming centre with changing room and a hefty fleet of 790 Adventure Rs and 1290 Adventure Rs all ready to welcome adventure riders both new and old (can be both of course). And of course there’s a curriculum to follow – start with the Bronze course, then go Silver, Orange (not gold – you can see what they’re doing there) and even Orange Pro. All courses are two-day.
