Mike Grimsted Internationally accredited Instructor with BMW Motorrad International Instructor Academy - IIA, is owner and instructor at the very well thought out training venue at Boulders Lodge.

Boulders Adventure Academy, with the Maluti Mountains as it's backdrop caters for both novice and advanced riders. Boulders Adventure Academy is situated in the scenic Malutis between Clarens and Fouriesburg on the ever popular R711 a short ride from the majestic Golden Gate Nature Reserve and only 9Kms from the Lesotho Border. Boulders Adventure Academy is accessible on tar, in other words no need to ride dirt before you have learnt how to do so! Not only is Boulders Adventure Academy a great training facility, but offers numerous guided outrides for both the novice and more experienced rider, a great base to spend a weekend and explore the surrounding areas, and even venture into neighbouring Lesotho. We at Boulders Adventure Academy are privileged enough to be able to take you on rides generally not accessible by the general public. All are welcome, and should you pass by take the time out to pop in for a chat and coffee. Mike will only be too happy to show you around, and you may even have the opportunity of doing some riding.
