Honda Off-road Experience Centre

Here’s my experience riding with Dave Thorpe and the Honda off-road centre. With a brand new fleet of CRF250 RX four strokes and 7 different locations to explore it’s an amazing opportunity to go off road, you can even borrow all the kit.

Having your first go off road can be quite intimidating, finding a bike, having the right kit and a safe place to ride but thankfully there are ways to get out riding, whether your rekindling a past love or having your first dabble in the mud. Hubby and I spent the day with Dave Thorpe and the Honda off-road experience centre on the CRF250 RX and it was mint. With a fleet of brand new Honda bikes, 7 venues and the legend Dave Thorpe (3x world champion 💪🏼) it’s a mega place to play. You can even go without ever having ridden a bike. They’ll teach you.

I’m often asked how to try off roading so wanted to see the options.

I had some good tumbles, got some awesome riding tips and most importantly I had a really good time. Smiles all round.
