Has anyone ever heard of events (rallies/rides/camps) that are specifically meant for beginning riders? I would love the idea of going to a training camp for 3 or 4 days that's like an extended MSF with organized riding and learning new skills ever day - does this kind of thing exist?
:riding1:

Not that I know of. i guess as long as everybody is a licensed rider it would not be any different than any other rally type event where everyone rides their own bike to a common destination and follows the rules of the road.
The training aspects would have to be done in parking lots much like the experienced rider course , with perhaps application of the training on the road rides.
Not a bad idea if you could get enough people to sign up. Maybe a bike weekend where you train in the morning and go for an afternoon cross country ride.

I have not....at least not these type. On of the groups I ride with have an introduction to group riding at the beginning of the season. We have a discussion on the rules and then go out on a ride to apply them. A short ride, slow speed with plenty of stops to go over the ride. The new riders can then join future rides with some experience.

Not to worry. We all started as newbies. Feel free to ask your questions.

This is a sympathetic forum to those who ask, listen, and, learn.
