Learn to Ride

Urban Rider is now operating in Victoria and offering limited “Learn to Ride” courses in 2024.
Six dates to choose from.

Training Location: Camosun College – Lansdowne Campus, Parking lot 1

2024/04/13 – 2024/04/14
2024/06/01 – 2024/06/02
2024/06/29 – 2024/06/30
2024/08/10 – 2024/08/11
2024/09/07 – 2024/09/08
2024/10/05 – 2024/10/06

Our advantage is small class sizes.

We offer parking lot / skills training for groups of 3 to 5 and traffic classes for groups of 1 to 3

Why small groups? In the parking lot, students can feel overwhelmed in larger groups, and instructors can struggle to give individualized attention. On the street, groups of more than 3 students can prove challenging for the instructor.

Why Ride?

Learning to ride a motorcycle can be an exhilarating and liberating experience and there’s no better place to ride than Vancouver Island. 
There are lot’s of great reasons to learn to ride a motorcycle. Here are a few: Freedom of Travel: Motorcycles offer a unique sense of freedom on the road. You can navigate through traffic more easily, find parking spots more readily, and enjoy an unobstructed 360-degree view of your surroundings.

Community: Bikers often speak about the strong sense of community among riders. Whether it’s a nod on the road or attending large meetups, motorcycle enthusiasts share a bond and camaraderie that’s unique to the biking world.

Cost-Effective: Motorcycles are often more fuel-efficient than cars and can be less expensive to purchase and maintain. They can be a cost-effective option for commuting and travel, especially in urban environments where distances are short, and traffic is heavy.

Adventure and Travel: Riding a motorcycle can turn any trip into an adventure. It’s a different way to experience and interact with the environment, whether you’re on a long road trip or just a short ride in the countryside.

Skill Development: Learning to ride a motorcycle is also about learning a new skill, which can be fulfilling in its own right. It improves your balance, reflexes, and attention to road conditions, making you a more skilled and aware driver, even when you’re in a car.

Mental Health: Many riders find motorcycling to be a great stress-reliever. The focus required to ride safely allows you to clear your mind of the day’s concerns and be truly present in the moment, providing a sense of calm and enjoyment.

Before you decide, remember that riding a motorcycle requires a commitment to safety, including proper training, licensing, and gear. But for many, the rewards of riding outweigh the risks. It’s not just a mode of transportation; it’s a passion and a lifestyle. If these aspects resonate with you, then learning to ride might just be a fulfilling endeavor.
