 24 June - Roadcraft Safety Workshop, Markham, ON

The Peak Rider Roadcraft Workshop – delivered at Honda Canada corporate headquarters in Markham - is for street-riding riders holding a valid motorcycle license.  (Note that this workshop has nothing to do with endorsement of Honda product. They are keen to promote safe riding practise and are kind enough to provide the venue.)
This is an interactive classroom and riding experience closely modelled on the United Kingdom’s highly acclaimed BikeSafe program. It consists of a classroom seminar followed by an assessment ride on public roads. The core content is the same and valid for all street riders no matter what type of motorcycle you ride. 

Rather than focus on bike handling skills – such as closed-course slaloms or road-racing derived techniques – we show why your mindset is by far the most important element for safe and proficient riding. You'll learn how to systematically manage situation awareness – making sure you always have sufficient time to react to hazards. 

In the classroom, we begin by looking at our motivations to ride - and why that’s important - before continuing with an examination of risk and vulnerability.  In the second part of the presentation we share a systematic approach so you can always create a safe and progressive ride.

After the classroom presentation we take to the street for on-road riding assessments (approximately 20 minutes per rider) and follow-up recommendations. 

Although the workshop is not about learning how to ’go fast’ it will definitely help those who may be wary of making efficient progress when speed limits and road conditions permit. Please note that this workshop is limited to a maximum of 12 riders. The cost for the workshop is $60 (CAN) per person.  There are vending machines, with limited options, on site but it’s best to bring your own lunch.  Plan to arrive for the workshop at 8:45 Saturday

Please join us on Sunday, 25 June for our 2nd annual summer ride-out in Ontario (Canada) cottage country. Although the route has yet to be finalised you can count on a laugh-enhanced day with up to 290 kms (180 miles) of rewarding riding . 

Plan to arrive by 09:00 - with a full tank of fuel - for a pre-ride coffee and briefing at Tim Hortons, 657 Cundles Rd. E. in Barrie. This is located in the North Barrie Crossing Shopping Centre, on the north side of Hwy 400 at the Duckworth St. exit. We'll get underway with a prompt 09:30 departure. 

There is no cost other than your personal expenses for food and fuel. All riders on all makes of bikes are most welcome. Weather? We guarantee it!

NB: Peak Rider social rides are neither parades nor races. Ride leaders are certified advanced riders. Riding is best described as safe and progressive.  Each person rides their own ride, i.e. at a pace suitable and safe for the them. There is never any pressure to ‘keep up’. Our mutually-inclusive goals are safety and enjoyment.
