Level One – An Introduction to Progressive Riding
What is progressive riding? In short, it’s the safest, smoothest method of riding from point to point. It is not the fastest way of riding, it’s a method which encourages rider awareness, reduces road risk, incentivises consistency and rewards dynamic, active and engaged riders.
During this Level One course, we concentrate on building four foundation principles for safe, progressive riding, these include:
- Bike and rider awareness
- Machine control
- Progressive riding toolkit
- Roadcraft 101
In addition to classroom training sessions throughout the day, each rider will get the benefit of two observed road rides with feedback from an experienced instructor.
