RIDE Day, a Free Motorcycling Experience, Coming to 15 Cities Across U.S.

Over 25 events have been scheduled from Alaska to Virginia.

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) unveiled its initial schedule of RIDE Day events for 2024, consisting of 25 planned events from Alaska to Virginia, with more being added on a regular basis. Find the schedule at https://msf-usa.org/ride-day/@msf__usa on Instagram and Motorcycle Safety Foundation on Facebook.

MSF recognizes nearly 2,000 training sites across the country where MSF-certified coaches teach motorcycle riding curricula. Each of these locations are eligible to host RIDE Days of their own.

RIDE Day events offer non-riders the opportunity to try a motorcycle for the first time. For current riders, it is an opportunity to ride their own machines in practice exercises designed to sharpen their skills. Through hosting a RIDE Day, MSF-recognized ranges open their facilities to the communities they serve. Events frequently feature motorcycle and gear displays, local vendors and more to create a welcoming motorcycle experience while providing attendees a look at proper rider training.

Two key elements of RIDE Day are MOTO Intro and SKILLS Check. Events can feature either or both of these activities:

  • MOTO Intro: Provides those wanting to try riding for the first time with the proper gear, motorcycle, space and professional coach to guide them through the experience. Within 30 minutes, participants can get familiar with motorcycle hand controls and, if comfortable, ride a small oval pattern. From that point, participants are offered additional information on next steps for their motorcycle riding journey. Participants are asked to wear long, non-ripped pants, over-the-ankle footwear and long sleeves. Helmets, gloves and eye protection are provided.
  • SKILLS Check: This activation is for current riders on their own motorcycles. Skills need to be practiced to be kept in top form. The school provides advanced exercise coaches to oversee and offer timely tips if desired. Information on MSF advanced riding courses is also made available. Participants are required to wear all of the safety equipment, and prior to starting Skills Check, their motorcycles will undergo a basic motorcycle safety check with an MSF-certified RiderCoach.
