Techniques that extend beyond basic riding are addressed in the ARC.
Advanced riding techniques are not intended to encourage or endorse riding at higher speeds, but are provided to improve the performance capabilities of riders, particularly related to overall control, cornering and emergency maneuvers.
The overall aim is to provide rider development in the areas of risk management, decision making, riding strategies and choices.

You will practice, quick swerving, obstacle avoidance techniques, traction control, maximum braking, and limited space maneuvers just to name a few. All skills you can use whether you are touring cross-country or just riding down to the corner store.
During the course you will be starting your bike often; make sure you have a well charged battery before attending class. There are no refunds for mechanical breakdowns.
