Learn Bike safety
In this course, you’ll learn bike safety, with a lot of emphasis on the special skills and mental attitudes necessary for riding a motorcycle on the street.
All of our RiderCoaches are certified by the MOTORCYCLE SAFETY FOUNDATION and are selected for their excellent teaching ability and technical skills. They’ll start you off with straight-line riding, turning, shifting and stopping. You’ll gradually progress to cornering, swerving and emergency braking. In the classroom you’ll learn about the different types of motorcycles, their controls, and how they operate. The RiderCoaches, all experienced motorcyclists, will advise you on what to wear for comfort and protection. You’ll find out how alcohol and other drugs affect your ability to ride safely. A very important segment of the course will show you how to create your own strategy for riding in traffic, and dealing with critical situations. The course concludes with a knowledge test and skill evaluation. You’ll smile after graduating successfully from the course as the RiderCoach hands you the completion card.

How much do people like our Basic Rider Class?
KUDOS from Julie F.
Tom and I just got back from a five day motorcycle trip. Yes, you read that right. I can’t believe I did it and I have you to thank. Tom says the we went for 1,000 miles and 7-8 passes that were over 10,000 feet. Wouldn’t you have thought I was the last person in the class to do that? Remember how timid and scared I was?
KUDOS from Richard R
….I wanted to reiterate how much I enjoyed the class, and how much I believe I learned. As I mentioned, I rode dirt bikes and some limited street bike time when I was in high school and early college 35 years ago – and have not ridden since. I took this class because I’ve decided to get a street bike and enjoy the Colorado countryside. Wendy was awesome. She took time to make sure we learned the skills on the range. She was patient but persistent with all of us to make sure we mastered the skills along the way. There were seven people in the class at different skill levels, and somehow she managed to keep all of us moving forward in a reassuring and affirming way. I learned a lot, she let me keep my ego intact along the way, and I feel very well prepared to go out and continue learning the skills to have a safe and enjoyable time on the road. I would recommend her, and your organization, to anyone who wants to learn the mechanics of safe riding.
