The California Superbike School was founded by Keith Code, the first man to observe and document the underlying principles which govern the art of riding motorcycles. His Twist of the Wrist books have been groundbreaking since the early 80s and they continue to push us to the limits of our understanding to this very day.
Keith didn’t just write a few books and then leave us to our own devices to work it all out. He formulated a step-by-step sequential program combining these theoretical principles with practical application for the purpose of training. And there you have it, the California Superbike School was established and now over thirty years later, it is the number one technique oriented riding school in all the worldwide locations we operate.
We challenge you to find a team of more dedicated, trained and qualified coaches in the art of cornering a motorcycle anywhere in the world today.
Your assigned on-track coach for the day is a professional. He is a trained observer and a correction artist and his job is to offer plenty of assistance by giving you immediate feedback on errors, as well as validation for good application of the drills and technical skills.
Giving friendly advice is not part of their training; ensuring your discovery and understanding of the art of cornering is part of their training and they will make sure that you get the most from your day.
California Superbike School UK is the first specialist on-track rider training provider in the UK to be awarded ‘Gold Standard’ accreditation under a new framework to recognise the facilitation of structured on-track rider training and consultancy services to the Motorcycle Rider Training Industry.
This prestigious new accreditation from the MCIAC (Motorcycle Industry Association Accreditation Centre) recognises and promotes specialist on-track rider training providers and the California Superbike School achieved the highest classification awarded by the MCIAC, the Gold standard – setting the benchmark for professional on-track motorcycle training, superior facilities and equipment within the UK.
Investment in the school’s professional coaching team reflects the quality of training provided by the organisation and was rewarded with high praise from the MCIAC assessor: “There is no doubt that the California Superbike School UK are utilising excellent coaching techniques and are a benchmark for the aspirations of the wider motorcycle rider training industry’s desire to deliver ‘client centred learning’.”
Information on the Gold Standard accreditation can be found on the MCIAC website: www.mciac.co.uk.
A man is best described by his passions. For Keith Code, his life-long passion has been motorcycles – fast, agile ones. Internationally recognized as the foremost authority on riding instruction, his three decades of accomplishments reveal a man whose unique vision has shaped the motorcycling world like no other.
In the 1970’s, after years of professional riding, Keith began private instruction sessions with amateur racers, some of whom quickly became national champions. His success teaching road racing prompted the media to dub him “road-racing guru”. Ever the pioneer, he began to systematically develop written materials regarding the technology of riding – the first in his field. After retiring from professional racing, Keith founded the world-renowned California Superbike School (CSS) in 1980 with the goal of developing the most comprehensive professional school for the motorcycle enthusiast.
Over the past 30 years, hundreds of thousands of students have improved their riding skills and cornering capabilities at CSS, including dozens of regional, national and world champions and the “A Twist of the Wrist” (Vols I and II) and “The Soft Science of Road Racing Motorcycles”, his instructional books, are international best sellers.
His passion for sharing the exhilaration of motorcycle riding with his students sets this school apart and makes us what we are today.

I did level 3 again in Mondello and within 5 seconds of sitting on a parked bike the coach picked up on a small mistake I was making that when corrected made a big difference in how I got on when I went out on track. By the time we got half way through the hip flick drill everything was clicking back in to place and I noticed a massive difference in my riding and confidence on the bike.

I completed level 1 at Brands Hatch. Wow what a day! It completely changed my style of riding. I feel so much more confident and in control now. Worth every penny. Every member of the team was fantastic. I can't wait to come back for level 2.

Scott P - Student
CSS has been one of the most exciting and enlightening things I have ever done.
The difference in my knowledge and riding is incredible. So much fun.
The feeling of putting in to practice what you have been taught, and then getting it right, is one of the best feelings ever.
Simon K - Student
Every member of the team made everyone feel welcome and relaxed, and the atmosphere among all of the students was lively and friendly.
I learnt a lot about what I was doing wrong with my riding and how to correct it which changed the way I rode. Big thanks to my instructor Duncan for spotting where I was going wrong and fixing it, Level 2 next.
