Well apart from Rob walking in and filming me in the bathroom those two of days off roading at the adventure rider centre in the south of spain were superb.

Day one was all about the basics, body position and finding grip and I had to give myself a pat on the back for getting stuck in. Day 2 on the other hand was different. Rob and Brian wanted to up the game and see how far they could push me. I think that episode is being released Tuesday or Wednesday but it's on the aimforthehorizon site now if you've subscribed for free.

Do let us know if you're enjoying the videos. Rob's spent weeks putting these together and he's not getting paid.

Here's the next episode guys. Hope you enjoy it.

EPISODE SEVEN -- Off Road Training Day 2: Impressed with the way James picked up the basics on day one it was time to push him to the next level and see what he's made of. This time taking us all further afield to ride some of the stunning routes, tracks and trails that the South of Spain has to offer.

Time for another episode guys and gals,

Check out our website for episode 9.

EPISODE EIGHT -- Bike Bits: With only three weeks until departure we still had a lot of work left to do before the bikes would be ready. With the arrival of the parts needed we took the time to introduce James to bike maintenance and talk him through why we're being so thorough.

The start of the riding now available on website

Hi All,

Just to give you the heads up Episode 9 is now available on the website http://www.aimforthehorizon.com

Departure: Finally it was time to leave for on first stage but nothing’s simple. With a train to catch and time ticking away we discovered some major problems with two of the bikes brakes. So it was back into the garage and all hands on deck.

Holy Crap!!!

Just found this!!! Watched up to the bike bits episode....8? Really enjoying seeing some "average joes" riding bikes on the TV. Can't believe Brain broke his back and is still going ahead....that's impressive.... James, way to go learning how to ride off road in a pretty gnarly looking school ground. How's the AT treating you off road?? Quite a bit heavier than your Husaberg.

Thanks Rob for your interesting take on planning a trip, and great camera work. I'll be watching!!!
