Ladies Offroad Trail Training 5 hour off-road education classes continue through the mid-United States in September and California during November at select 4 Wheel Parts stores. These classes are hands-on, educational, fun and rewarding for both ladies and men. Every skill level is welcome to join, it is a great start for a new offroader and the experienced offroader will be pushed with pro-tips. “We recently broke the class down while on a midnight drive to the next location and were surprised when we counted over 85 Tips, Tricks and Tools that we talk about is a fast 5 hours,” exclaimed Charlene Bower, Bower Media and Ladies Offroad Network owner. Go to www.LadiesOffroadTrailTraining.com to find out when the class will be in your area and register.
The class is hosted by Charlene Bower, International 4 Wheel Drive Certified Trainer, and 25 year veteran of working in the offroad industry. Bower has multiple podium wins and has been recognized by the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2016 and 2018, upon many other accolades. “Her energy and jokes make the class go by faster than we realized while she takes time to answer all of our questions to make sure that we understand each of the topics before moving onto the next one. This was one of the best classes that I have ever attended,” said recent attendee Susan W.
Class topics include how to use a large selection of recovery tools in multiple scenarios including straps, connectors, winch points and pullies. Participants get to learn about the components of a winch and hi-lift, why you would use one, how to use correctly, and participate in hands-on activities with both. There is a lot of concept teaching of 4-wheel drive, lockers, sway bars, airing down tires, airing up and how to be an intelligent consumer as you purchase aftermarket parts. Charlene dives into the fundamental of tires followed by teaching how to change a tire and plug a tire, which participants end the class doing. All topics are taught at a high level of standard with industry knowledge included.
