New River Community College is offering a motorcycle sidecar/trike riding course beginning Friday, May 30. The class runs Friday evening from 6 to 9:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at NRCC in Dublin. Tuition is $125.
The Sidecar/Trike Education Program (S/TEP) includes targeted training for sidecar and trike operation. It is designed to teach riders the skills necessary to safely operate a three-wheel vehicle on the street, even if they have never ridden any kind of motorcycle. The 16-hour course takes the rider through the basics of motorcycle operation including effective braking, turning skills, obstacles avoidance and other safe riding strategies.
Sidecar units are available for participants to use. However, riders are encouraged to bring their own sidecar or trike for use in the course.
