Sidecar/trike course offered at NRCC this month

A sidecar/trike motorcycle course is being offered at New River Community College this month.

This non-credit course will be held April 20 through 22. The class is Friday evening from 6 to 9:30 p.m. in 135 Rooker Hall at NRCC in Dublin, and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the motorcycle range, parking lot H, for riding instruction. Tuition is $149.

The program is offered as 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, obstacle 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.
