eRider option available at this location

At our South San Francisco site, we are offering eRider. The eRider online classroom is a six hour course that can be done at your convenience and in the comfort of your home. It is highly interactive, using video and other features to address risk management, riding strategy, roadway management, impairments, and special riding situations like carrying passengers and group riding. Participants complete all classroom activities (6 chapters) before the first riding session.

The eRider is a great option for students who are successful at learning in an individualized, self-paced environment. Please check our eRider FAQs page for eRider system requirements.

"Awesome experience - I d never ridden a motorcycle before and felt very comfortable cruising and stopping at least at low speeds by the end. Erin Mitch and Crusoe all gave really helpful advice and clearly knew what they were talking about"
― Joseph Martin
"This class was well worth the money. The classroom instructions were applicable and but not overly tedious. The range was a bit remedial in the beginning, but quickly ramped up and was actually quite fun and educational. The instructors, Tim, Chris and Lisa were great. The content was well planned out and rehearsed and there was no wasted time. Well done!"
― Kyle Prusso

"Awesome experience! Chris, Kyle, and Isaac are great instructors. They will correct your mistakes every time they see something wrong because they really want to prevent you from building bad habits. I recommend this course for anyone interested in learning to ride. Don't be intimidated, most of the class has never touched a bike before and they start you off really easy until you're comfortable!"
― Joseph Fontana
"They did a great job. Cool instructors and students. The only thing they can improve is their lot to make it more realistic to everyday riding conditions. But they did a great job with what they have and everything is practical, useful and safety oriented. Thank you guys"
