This class is for a rider with little to no experience or a rider who has been riding for a short period of time. It is a FREE 2 hour curriculum in the welcome center on select Friday nights 5-7pm and Saturday mornings 8-10am. In this class we will discuss how your machine operates, what gear to wear, how to avoid incidents and how to perform maintenance on your machine. You will learn to develop the good skills with best practices. We will discuss how to ride over obstacles, carrying passengers, and how to have fun while riding in a safe manner. There will be open discussion at the end to ask questions and will be directed to classes for “hand on” training.
