The OpenRider approach is underpinned both by independent research and years of practice. Scientific research indicates that incorporating motorbike riding into daily life improves various cognitive functions (particularly in the prefrontal cortex) and has proven positive effects on mental and emotional health.
OpenRider (initiated by Morag Campbell) is a niche coaching programme that uses riding as a way to open up new perspectives, new possibilities, new adventures, new friendships, and a new sense of freedom and empowerment. Our programme encourages you to experience the integration of mind, body and emotion in a simple and enjoyable manner. The result is new skills and improved confidence, and the ability to apply your mind and body more effectively in both riding and every day life.
OpenRider has the support of BMW Motorrad, KTM, Yamaha, Husqvarna, Triumph and potentially Honda, offering a variety of bike brands and gear. For anyone who is completely new to riding, we offer the opportunity to try different equipment, to discover what suits you best. Our courses are held at a safe training ground in the scenic surrounds of Hartebeespoort, outside of the normal hustle of city life.
We offer a variety of courses designed to support the growth and joy of our motorbiking community. This includes a women’s-only platform, and tailor-made courses if desired.
