Calling all local motorcyclists: workshops are planned to assist you in improving your riding skills

'Be a Better Biker' workshops allow riders to take their skills to a level that helps improve safety and enjoyment.

  • Overtaking
  • Cornering techniques
  • On-road assessment with observers, approximately 2 hours
