We can arrange airport transfers or you can hire a car to get you to the Redtread Country House from Malaga Airport. Whichever way you choose, it takes approximately 50 minutes to get to us here in Nerja.

Upon arrival, we will show you around the property and its facilities, you may want to detour into our bar for complimentary sandwiches; we will then show you to your room and leave you to settle in. Depending on your arrival time we will get you kitted out in your riding gear to help speed the morning up.

The whole evening is yours to enjoy.

In the morning, breakfast is served at 8.30am. We will go through the safety briefing, get you fully kitted out in your protective riding gear (if not done the day before) and also talk you through the “sweeper system” used here at Redtread. This will help you to fully understand the benefits of using this technique so you will feel more comfortable riding out with us. We will also demonstrate the basic operation of your motorcycle and show you how to pick the bike up from the floor in case of a spill!

At approximately 10am we will head off for the day and spend the first day on a skills training day providing you with more guidance on technique, general riding tips to help you enjoy your riding experience with Redtread.

After lunch, we get back into our gear and head off again back out for some more skills training. Normally we land back at base for around 5pm so you have time to relax and top up with a complimentary piece of homemade cake, enjoy a beer, take a swim and chill out.
