The Virginia Rider Training Program in Charlottesville sends new licensed riders out onto the roads every week from March to November. Recently, one motorcycle class graduated onto the roads after a weekend of coaching in Albemarle County.
The program that aims to teach riders how to ride a motorcycle as well as the importance of riding safety begins on Fridays in the classroom and then out on the course in front of Albemarle High School on Saturdays and Sundays.
“We like to stress safety in what you wear, in what your attitude is before going out there, and yes the risks you know you have got to be aware all the time,” said Ruth Greer, the program coordinator.
Greer said usually there is about 500 students that go through the program each year but this summer, they have not filled as many classes as they usually do.
