Dirt Bike Lessons For Adults – Always Near You
Are you an adult looking for some beginner dirt bike lessons to grow your riding skill? Look no further, because I want to let you in on an option that’s available for you, whether you live anywhere in America or somewhere else in the world.
If you’re brand new to dirt biking, I want to answer some common questions to better prepare you.
Is riding a dirt bike hard?
Riding a dirt bike is hard if you’re on terrain that it’s built for, such as single track trails or a motocross track. With that said, learning the basics of riding in a flat and controlled environment (a field or large open yard) is actually pretty easy. You just need the right steps and the right order to follow them in to safely ride a dirt bike.
How long does it take to learn how to ride?
You can learn to ride a dirt bike with a clutch in less than an hour with proper instruction.
Being confident and skilled enough to ride single track trails? That can take weeks, months, or years, depending on the path you take and how often you ride.
What do I need to get started?
Are you new to dirt biking? It can be easy to just jump right in and start with just any bike and ride without any real purpose but having fun. That’s great, but there’s some things that you need to be aware of to build your confidence and prevent a major crash early on.
Or maybe you haven’t decided anything and feel too overwhelmed because there’s so many bikes to choose from, you’re not sure what gear is needed, and you’re scared you’re going to kill yourself right away.
Either way, you’re not alone, and that’s why I’m here to help!
The first thing you need to do is decide what type of riding you want to do. Play riding or trail riding is probably the most common, and it should be where you want to start if you’re new to dirt bikes.
Once you have that figured out, it’s time to choose what dirt bike you want. There’s many to choose from, and you definitely don’t want a bike that’s hard to ride.
What’s a good beginner bike?
A great dirt bike to start out on has some basic features: easy to start and ride, smooth and predictable power, low enough seat height, and soft suspension.
This usually narrows you down to most trail bikes. Remember, you can always upgrade later. It’s better to start on a slow bike to grow your riding skill than to start on a fast bike and end up hurting yourself in a crash.
What kind of riding lessons do I need?
You need to learn the basic controls, understand why they’re important, and then learn proper riding technique. This includes the clutch, throttle, brakes, shifting, balance, as well as your mindset.
There’s a lot more to dirt bike safety than simply wearing the proper riding gear. Yes, learning the basic riding techniques mentioned above is important, but there’s ways that many riders fail to learn or choose to be ignorant about.
My goal is to teach you what you actually need to know to be safe and confident on your dirt bike based on my 20+ years of riding and working on my own bikes. That’s why I want to introduce you to The Virtual Dirt Biker School. It’s basically online riding lessons for beginners that are taught in the most efficient and easy to understand way.
Can I actually learn to ride online?
Like most things online, you have to be discerning about the information you read or watch. Will it actually work for me? That is the question, especially when it comes to the first online training for new riders.
I believe in my course because it’s the same way that I have taught many first time riders, both men and women, young and old. It’s also the simplest and fastest path to become a skilled rider.
