Workshops

Free UNDER THE RADAR Rider Safety Workshops again in 2018-2019.

These workshops in rural NSW will be possible thanks to a grant from Transport for NSW

If you are interested in attending a workshop in your local area contact your local Council and ask them to contact us, or, you can email us at david@survivetheride.org.

Thanks to the  Tweed Shire, Goulburn, Eurobodalla, Port Macquarie, Bathurst and Blayney Councils for all their efforts in organising the workshops during the first half of 2018.  Over 150 riders attended our workshops.

A number of Rider Safety Workshops were also conducted in rural NSW in 2015 with the assistance of the Road Safety Officers at Coffs Harbour, Eurobodalla and Albury Councils, local motorcycle dealers and NRMA Motoring and Services.

Our workshops are attended by people wanting to gain a higher level of understanding on increasing the smiles and reducing the frights when riding.

This workshop provides information for both new and and potential riders along with those just wanting a refresher course.

The workshop aim:

We want to assist riders (including new and “returning” riders) to enjoy riding while also minimising the chance of repair bills, medical bills and Police fines.

Why should you attend?

We are riders so we know how much enjoyment there is to be gained from riding.  But we are also human and we know how easy it is to make a mistake regardless of our experience   (we have the scars and the demerit points from our own little mistakes.)

You will also make mistakes.  We talk about how to avoid your own simple mistakes and how to anticipate the mistakes of others so you can still enjoy the ride and improve your skills.

Who should attend?

Both new and experienced riders have benefited from the workshops.

We can also organise workshops tailored for specific groups such as dealerships, riding groups and clubs.

What do we talk about?

The workshop will cover:

  • The enjoyment and practicalities of riding
  • Maintaining your machine
  • Debating the pros and cons of riding gear
  • Reducing your personal  risks
  • How to get from A to B and back again in one piece and with a grin on your face.

If your dealership or shop would like to host a workshop, please contact us to book a date.
