MOTIVATE

STUDENTS LEARN TO SAFELY OPERATE A HONDA TRAIL BIKE BY COMPLETING A CHALLENGING 21-LESSON RIDER SAFETY COURSE.

 

AFTER EARNING THE RIDER CERTIFICATION, STUDENTS EARN THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN  WEEKLY RIDES BY ACHIEVING GOALS, MAKING ACADEMIC IMPROVEMENTS, AND RESPECTING AUTHORITY FIGURES.
