About Adventure Family Motorsports
We offer a very unique and personalized experience renting Dirtbikes "for famlies" and provide free training on how to ride a Dirtbike safely on our "Private" 24 acre Ranch in Florida (we only host 1 family at a time to improve the safety factor & increase the training speed). No extra charge for training. All Safety Equipment is included as well as high top boots. All you need is long pants and tall socks. We have packages setup on our website and provide snacks, gatorade and water free. Since we are a "by-appointment-only business" and only host 1 family at a time Please try and book your session at least 4 days in advance to make sure your date and time is available. We use a follow the leader tour guide format for riding through our trails to increase the safety factor. NOTE: The first person to book the date on our website gets that date. Call Doug to confirm your date and time before you book it.

We have done 2 private lessons with Doug and his son. They started us out on bikes not requiring a clutch to shift gears and we learned the basics. From there we moved up to larger dirt bikes and he taught my son how use the clutch to change gears. We learned how to handle the sandy terrain and got out to do trail riding around the property. This was a great experience for those just beginning to start to ride dirt bikes and for more experienced riders.

AFM is undeniably the best experience our family has enjoyed from youngsters to Grammies. Doug’s outfit surpasses group instruction as he only offers private instruction one family at a time on the ranch. Safety is key- he never minimizes. He instills confidence and helps each of us attain a level of expertise all the while adding humor and downright fun. The boys look up to Doug and have once again asked to go dirt biking before Christmas. I’ll see what Santa says about that! Top Notch

Recently I took my son to AFM for a fun day of dirt bike riding. It was an amazing experience! Doug was a great instructor for my son who had not been on a dirt bike before. We had a blast and look forward to doing it again!

Thank you for your business and compliments Eric! I have really worked hard to develop a very comprehensive training methodology over the past 15 years and have used a lot of what I learned when I was a Professor of Electrical & Mechanical Engineering........it has to be broken down into steps that each individual can absorb. Adapting to each persons learning capability is the hardest part of the entire process and is why I like the challenge.........it can be easy for some and extremely difficult for others. The only thing that matters in the end is that I build good riding skills in the subconscious of every rider so they have the correct physical reaction in all riding conditions to keep them safe at our facility and when they ride in other places. See you soon for your next appointment! Douglas Tilghman Founder & Owner

Well I finally checked this off the bucket list and I can't wait to return. Doug was a patient and professional teacher. The facility has everything you need to ride and offers restrooms, cold drinks and plenty of shade. The terrain varies from open fields to wooded trails and is well managed. I highly recommend Doug and Adventure Family Motorsports.

I am very proud of you Fred as you tried something new at 61 years old and will use you as my inspiration to do the same next year when I turn 61. I enjoyed hanging out with you and have your next appointment waiting for you. As a small business owner trying to compete with giants like Disney World, Busch Gardens and Lego Land........we appreciate every customer and are grateful for your business. All the best Douglas Tilghman Owner

If you’re trying to decide whether or not to do this…. Do it!!!! My teens learned and did so much! Instructor kept kids attention and emphasized importance of safety. I really liked that all equipment was provided. I look forward to making future visits.
