Sweet Lamb (UK), 24th April 2024 – In partnership with Sweet Lamb Riding School, Ducati has officially opened the new UK expansion of its premium DRE Adventure Academy riding experience to bring more emotion, fun and safety to adventure riding.

Situated at the Sweet Lamb off-road centre in the spectacular Cambrian Mountains in Wales, the new Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy offers 6,600 acres of prime adventure bike territory to explore. It is the ultimate destination for anyone wanting to experience the thrilling performance and outstanding capability of Ducati adventure bikes at one of the best off-road riding locations in the UK.

With dedicated training areas designed to build up adventure riding ability and miles of trails helping learners put their new skills to the test, the Sweet Lamb off-road centre is the perfect home for Ducati DRE Adventures. All of this is on private land designed for professional motorsport use to make the training safe, effective, and enjoyable for everyone.

High-quality training is central to the DRE philosophy, and Ducati has pulled out all the stops to provide this at the new facility in Wales.
Training at the Academy is led by Mark Molineux – multiple enduro, motocross and rally champion with a legendary reputation in the industry – with a team of top riders and trainers who pride themselves on helping riders of all levels improve their offroad skills. International guests from the Ducati Adventure world will participate on selected dates as guest instructors to add a flavour of international DRE expertise.
With four levels of training available – from Rookie to Level 3 Course - the Academy caters for all abilities, including raw beginners with no offroad experience, transforming them into riders ready to take on anything they dream of.

The fleet of the latest Ducati adventure bikes at Sweet Lamb ensures that world-class training is matched with the best possible tools for the job. The motorcycles available at the Academy are the brand-new Multistrada V4S, Multistrada Rally, DesertX and DesertX Rally.

The brand-new Ducati hospitality space at Sweet Lamb matches the finest adventure bikes, top training, and jaw-dropping scenery. It welcomes riders for an adventure experience in total relaxation. Italian coffee provided by Lavazza and lunch will be available throughout the day. The Ducati welcome kit and the final certificate will send learners home with a big smile.

Booking for the Sweet Lamb DRE Adventure Academy courses is available online at www.dre-adventure.co.uk, with a Rookie Day available at £295 and a full two-days adventure weekend at £599. Demand for places at the academy has been high from the announcement last year, and only limited places are left for this riding season.
