Enduro rider Megan Griffiths to run NS clinics!
Enduro rider Megan Griffiths aka @MegsBraap, is heading East to run three dirt bike clinics in Nova Scotia.
How it came together
Last season, we noticed that many NSORRA riders were developing advanced skills and were looking for bigger challenges. We began to incorporate enduro skills in some of our hare scrambles to increase the challenge and the fun.
We promoted a hard enduro event at Thistle Dew Farm in Cape Breton. One of our members, Herb Harnish, put together a course on his property that was enjoyed by many, and the Thistle Hurt Enduro was born.
We choose Meg!
We decided to look for an opportunity to train our members in enduro skills. We approached Megan Griffiths about coming to Nova Scotia to put on some clinics. Megs is widely known in dirt bike circles for her riding skill, teaching tips and great personality displayed on her YouTube channel and in social media posts.
Both Megs and her Traction eRag management team were indeed interested in visiting the East Coast. In fact, manager Dallas Shannon is a Cape Breton native!
After several back and forth emails and a couple of phone calls, it all came together. August was decided upon, then came COVID! But Megs was up for the challenge and offered to drive cross-country from BC and self-isolate in NS for 14 days before the clinics.
Her clinic instruction is tailored to individual riding ability. She focuses on progressive learning, linking each concept to the next. Unlocking these abilities will allow riders to achieve their full riding potential with skills for a lifetime on two-wheels.

Megs is an inspiration to off-road riders globally. She loves to trail ride and loves to share her passion for the sport.
Megan has been riding enduro motorcycles for over 10 years and has thousands of hours in the saddle. In 2016, Megan was chosen to represent Canada in the “dirtbike Olympics,” the International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) hosted in Spain where she came home with a bronze medal.
In 2018, Megan became a coaching apprentice under the watchful eye of the Traction eRag and its gang of instructors. She has contributed to a curriculum designed to teach riding fundamentals in a fun and supportive framework. Megan’s course is designed for novice to intermediate riders but many experts have bobbled and/or dropped their bike while attempting her progressive skills class.
Since 2018, Megan has assisted or led 35 clinics and has had hundreds of riders under her care. Megan is an organized and confident teacher who delivers her lessons in a clear and concise format. Many participants have commented on her patient and gentle demeanor. Students will leave the class with increased confidence and a much better understanding of techniques needed to improve riding skills.
