MotoVentures proudly announces their Training Tours are now available on select weekends at Ocotillo Wells State Vehicular Recreational Area (SVRA) in Southern California. MotoVentures 2008 Training Tour dates are: April 29 and 30, May 3 and 4, June 7 and 8, October 25 and 26, November 15 and 16, and December 6 and 7.
MotoVentures Training Tours are the ultimate combination of dirt bike
rider training, overnight camping, and touring a vast and beautiful
desert area for fun family-oriented, motorcycle skill-building
adventures that everyone can enjoy. Day one participants will learn to
ride or take their existing skills to the next level in an all-natural
terrain environment. That night everyone can camp together in the great
outdoors, or stay in nearby hotels, and enjoy dinner while reminiscing
about that day's events. On day two participants will continue training
while utilizing what they learned the first day by trail riding on many
appropriate routes the area has for each skill level.
"This fun new option is for our training course graduates who want to
immediately utilize their newfound skills to go on a long ride
somewhere. When we approached Ocotillo Wells their Rangers thoroughly
researched our background and qualifications before granting us
permission to operate in their park. They welcome our professional
approach to training and emphasis on safe and responsible off road
riding." Gary LaPlante, MotoVentures president.
Ocotillo Wells SVRA is conveniently located in the heart of Southern
California, only one hour from San Diego and approximately 2.5 hours
from OC/LA. Ocotillo Wells charges no fees, is open to the public 24/7,
and encompasses over 70,000 acres, making it the largest SVRA in
California. The park features staging areas with shaded cabanas,
restrooms, showers, and waste disposal. For eons the wind, rain, and
floods have shaped the landscape creating beautiful sand washes, dirt
hills, and sand dunes…fun and challenging terrain for riders to test
their skills on. Ocotillo Wells Training Tour participants can visit
area landmarks with colorful names like Devils Slide, Blow Sand Hill,
Barrel Springs, Shell Reef, Gas Domes, Artesian Well, Pumpkin Patch, and
the famous Borrego Badlands where many freestyle motocross videos have been filmed.
MotoVentures offers training and trials almost every week at their Rider
Training Center at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, with
dual sport tours available in the American Southwest throughout the
year. For more information go to MotoVentures.com.
