Refresher Rides

Whether we ride a lot or a little,(motorbike or scooter), we all need to regularly review our riding habits to keep ourselves safe on the road. Our 2 hour individual 'Refresher Rides' are based on NZTA's CBTA Full Licence standards & incorporate elements of the IAM's Advanced Rider Programme. Every Rider should do this at least once. NB; Our 2hr Refresher rides cost $120 (gst incl.) but you can register for a $50 subsidy at; www.ridetolive.co.nz  prior to the ride and reduce the cost to $70. Our thanks go to 'Ride to Live' for this offer.

We provide individual training sessions - one to one 'on road' tuition - as well as a range of group training options. Contact us today to book the right training for you.

Icy roads

Take great care out there over the next few days folks. Snow on the tops, rain yesterday and frost overnight can mean Black Ice - especially on bridges and shaded areas of road. You cant see it and it can be lethal. Keep your speed down and Ride carefully.
