Another satisfied “Spin” customer [Spin is my forum moniker!]
I had my corners smoothed off by Kevin on Monday; a one day Bends course now comes with the ‘Cousin Jack’ seal of approval.
Seriously, thanks Kev, it was surprisingly hard work and I was knackered when I got home last night but it worked. I rode home using what I had been taught and the difference, particularly on right-hand bends, was amazing. Even the ‘thirds’ bit is starting to make sense.

All courses now booking for March dates in Kent and Oxford!
“Survival Skills on Tour” Dates to follow but contact me now for information about dates for the Peak District. Here’s a few recent comments on courses up in the Peaks
DDB: “Good course though – I feel vastly more confident about choosing the right line through bends and not getting caught out half-way round…”
Daesimps: “The course was very good and has improved my confidence no end. I’m also far more aware of road positioning when taking junctions/bends.”
BigJim: ” For anyone thinking of taking one of Spin’s courses “Just do it” What Spin showed us and went through really was what I needed after a year of riding after doing DAS. I’m a lot more confident and I’m now looking at my lines and planing my corners rather than going in quick, hard on the brakes, fling it round the corner then back on it.”
King756: “Another thumbs up from me, thanks Kevin. Really enjoyed it. I now know where I should be when on the road in town / corners. Just need it little more time practicing making sure my lines are right and being a bit more positive on the throttle/brakes.”
(and one from Kent!)
Melons: “Was also intending to bore you with multiple paragraghs giving a blow by blow account of my five & a half hours riding the twisties of Kent, but quite frankly what’s the point.
“Instead, I’ll just comment on how impressed I was with ‘Spin’, he’s a very likeable bloke, very calm/measured, patient and really puts you at ease, so at ease that I cant really remember riding any corners that afternoon – after an initial chat, coupled with ‘in ear’ commentary the Country twisties that normally make me feel so ill at ease seemed to straighten out, loose their manace and become extremelly comfortable, natural to navigate.”
