Recommended Training Courses Near San Diego?

Hey guys I would like to take a riding course for intermediate or advanced skill set near the San Diego area if possible. Does anyone have any advice or experience to share?

Other than to say the courses are a good thing, mo. But you could look up MSF and see what's close. I'm in LA are and imagine there would be more than one offered in the general area.

Yeah that is the only one that I was able to find as well. The advanced course sounds pretty cool but I was hoping for some personal info from those that have taken the courses. Have you taken a MSF before?

I'm sure there are more. Expand your search.

+1 on the Pacific Safety program. I took the MSF beginner class with them and am considering the advanced class. By the way, since you are in San Diego let me know if you would like to get together for a ride.

+1 on the Total Control Riding course.


The MSF's Experience Rider Course is just a quick rehash of some of the basics from the BRC. Probably a decent basic skills tuneup for infrequent or re-entry riders, but certainly not "intermediate to advanced".

To answer your question, yes, I've taken the courses. They are a help and worth the effort. Any track schools you make take will be beneficial too. Been there done that.
I have no desire to go fast on a track again but the experience is also worth the money.
