The Rafferty brothers, AKA Pro Ride Guides have collaborated with Ride in Peace to help aspiring Downhill and Enduro racers improve their skills, speed and confidence. To do this they’re putting on three separate subsidised coaching days at Hamsterley Forest, so 11-17 year olds can choose between Trail skills, Airtime and Downhill – or all three for just £30 per day!
Ride in Peace is a non-registered charity that was set up in memory of two young Downhill racers Ben Ineson and Tom Rodgers, who tragically died in a car crash back in 2009. Dave Carpenter of Ride in Peace say’s ‘we want the boys enthusiasm and love for racing bikes to be passed on to the next generation of racers. I’ve known Joe and Al of Pro Ride Guides for a long time now, and I’m really happy and confident that they can inspire and help young riders achieve their goals.’
We think it’s great to see money from the fund being spent on things like this as any kids who spends a day with the Rafferty boys will definitely have one of their best riding days ever, and they’ll come away with a whole pile of new skills. So, if you fit the bill and fancy taking advantage of this great deal (a course like this would normally cost you considerably more) then head over here for the full details.
