WHAT WE DO ..

Ride & Skid It provide the ideal experience for complete beginners to accomplished motorcyclists wanting to have a bash at the speedway or flattrack with tuition from championship winning professional riders

You are in safe hands for the four hours of pure fun!

The bikes used are Honda 125cc speedway bikes for the speedway experience and Honda CRF 125’s for the flattrack experience.
We use 125’s to give you an experience of how to powerslide the bike in the correct and safe way, whilst having fun.
It’s all done at your own pace with full tuition from Les Collins, a former ranked number two speedway rider and his son Aidan, himself a five times British flattrack champion and speedway rider.

All safety kit is provided.

Fancy having a bash at something new that many top Moto gp riders use as a form of training?!

Flat Track is recognised by many top and upcoming Moto gp riders with them all using it as part of their important training schedule.

This is a great opportunity for you to experience new skills, throttle control, body positioning and how to powerslide along with how to save a front end slide all whilst riding on a loose surface!!!

Flat Track racing is one of the oldest and most loved forms of motorcycle racing in the world and in addition to the fun and fitness, the evidence is that riding off-road improves motorcycle control.

Whether you’re a complete beginner on a motorcycle to a more accomplished rider wanting to gain or hone in on your skills we are sure you will enjoy a day at one of our Ride & Skid It! Flat Track experiences!!

Our Flat Track experience days are £95 Per rider for the 4 hours which includes use of bikes, safety kit and tuition.

We cater for complete beginners and first time timers on a bike to more accomplished riders that are wanting to gain more experience and riding techniques along with learning new skills.

We use Honda Crf 125cc bikes to learn the art of Flat Track and to enable riders to learn the basics ie; body positioning, power sliding, riding lines, and to experience something unique which is taught by former speedway rider and 5 times British flattrack champion Aidan Collins. All of our other instructors are championship riders from a background of Speedway/Flat Track/Dirt Track.

The Honda CRF 125cc bikes that will be used have gears and a rear brake (no front brake!)
During the course of the day the main oval track will be used along with left and right hand corners giving you the ultimate Flat Track experience.

In the format of the session we will assess the confidence/competence of each participant individually and show them the bikes and give them their first rides, from then it will be a case of lots of track time throughout the day and loads of fun!!!!

There is NO fee to pay for any accidental damage, this is all inclusive!!

On that note, please remember ALL riders do so at their own risk. Motorsports can be dangerous.

We don’t have restrictions as such, age depends on fitness and our kit goes upto a size 40″ waist.

A basic level of fitness with no underlying medical conditions is required to ride bikes. Feel free to contact us with any queries regarding this.

YOU ARE IN SAFE HANDS !

TESTIMONIALS

I have got know Aidan pretty well, so I had a go on one of the speedway training days and I absolutely loved it.

Carl Fogarty
Carl Fogarty MBE King of the Jungle, and the odd motorbike championship or two !

I had a really good experience at Ride and Skid It! I learnt a lot about how to ride flattrack properly and I enjoyed it that much I now have one of my own.
Aidan is extremely knowledgeable and a great teacher, I highly recommend giving it ago, it’s a very good day out!

Danny Webb
Danny Webb British Road Racer

Always a mega day out at Ride and Skid It!, whether I’m riding flattrack or speedway, I would highly recommend their experience days for riders of all abilities looking to improve their motorcycle control.

Rick English
Rick English Film and stunt performer.

Love my visits up to ride and skid it, such a highly recommended fun and enjoyable day to learn some new skills. I’ve now got the flattrack bug!

Jenny Tinmouth
Jenny Tinmouth British Superbike Rider

Most people know me as a tarmac, circuit racer but my first love was riding on dirt. I think most of my success on tarmac came from the fact that I had a lot of feel and understanding of what was happening underneath me. All this came from spending so much of my childhood riding on dirt a skill once mastered you never lose.
I’ve been lucky enough to experience what Aidan Collins does up at the ride it and skid it school up in Buxton he teaches what I call the fundamentals of riding on dirt. He has a real natural and easy to understand way of teaching the technical aspects of sliding a bike. I can’t recommend his school enough if you want to learn how to control a motorcycle better there’s not a more cost affective way then to pay a visit up there.

Neil Hodgson Former British and World Super Bike Champion and BT Sport commentator.

Great to get back on a bike again after retiring, this is the best experience/school to learn the basics of speedway with knowledgeable instructors. Highly recommended for all abilities from complete beginners through to amateur racers.

Joe Screen Former World Speedway U-21 Champion and Grand Prix rider.

You’ve gone and done it now Ride and Skid it! I’ve just got a new love.

Get me a speedway bike – even if I do crash!
