  • review rating 5  I signed up to the New Rider course. Luke's instructor experience was very apparent and great in quality. Luke was calm, clear and concise. As a new rider I felt very much at ease with the speed at which I was being taught and was very comfortable and not at all pressured. Great providers of training, I highly recommend them!
