  • Learner - Newbie Friendly Ride, Thursday 14th May, 2015

    The rides cater for confident learners and new riders, as well as those just looking for a cruisey ride or to help Perth learners gain more experience on the roads before they go for their tests.

    Meet point - Parking area just down the road from the PUMA service station on the cnr of Guildford Rd and Katanning St, Bayswater, near the Tonkin Hwy on/off ramps

    Meet 6.15pm - Leave 6.45pm

    Hint for the ride - No pussies here!!



    PLEASE READ THESE 10 POINTS
    1. Learners please make sure you are capable of riding in traffic at night, maybe even arrange with a shadow to take you out one on one a night or two before.
    2. Shadows, especially new ones, myself or the CM's (Corner Marker's) haven't met, Please make sure the learner you pick up is capable of riding in traffic at night, if you think they aren't ready for it, either bring them to the meet point to say Hi and then take them home again (we'll tell you where the dinner stop is so you can catch us up) or let them know that you don't think they are ready and take them for a small ride around their area.
    3. New riders (those that haven't attended before) Please introduce yourself to me or one of the CM's in Yellow vests, if you can't find us, ASK!!
    4. Newly Licenced riders, Please make yourself known to myself and/or a CM, you are also requested to ride near the front of the ride until you are familiar with how things work.
    5. Learner riders Please make sure you park your bikes at the front or out in the open, don't get boxed in, this will make it easier when we come to leave.
    6. ALL riders Please listen to the ride briefing, give each other plenty of room and we should all arrive at our destinations safe and happy
    7. As posted, these rides are for Learners to gain road time before their tests, some nights are slower than others, depending on the ride route and which riders turn up, if you want to do high jinks or the ride is too slow for you, Please leave at an appropriate place i.e. road junction, traffic lights etc. When you leave, Please make sure that you have been seen waving that you aren't continuing on the ride, if someone follows you, Please stop and let them know what you are doing, so that they have time to rejoin the ride.
    8. If you are coming along to show off or piss fart around - then Piss off, take your friends and do your own ride.
    9. All are welcome as long as they are prepared to behave and enjoy the ride for what it is.
    10. Don't pass the ride leader unless you are a CM!

              Are these every 2 weeks or so? Exactly how learner friendly are they? I'm keen to get along to a learner ride but only have a few hours experience on my bike. Need to get a bit more practice and confidence and hopefully get along to one soon, maybe the next one.

                These are every week, either Tuesday or Thursday.

                Normally at least had a few good instructored lessons, have experience riding at night, and able to handle yourself confidently on the road and in group rides. ("confidently" refers to actual ability to ride, not just in the head)
                look where you want to go~

                  Their main purpose is to provide an environment for learners to get more road experience & build up your confidence; as long as a learner is confident to ride on roads in traffic, ride at night, have good basic control over the bike then you'd be fine. But an alternative perhaps is to arrange a shadow ride with someone first to go out one time & just ride together & get their opinion before joining a group ride; that's what I did & I think it prepared me for the group ride pretty well. Having lessons is completely different to ride in a group setting. You would need a shadow to get you to the group ride anyway; so always good to find some around you who would be willing to spare you their time to help you out.

                  The learner rides are weekly; alternating Tues & Thurs evenings week to week. Always same meet/leave time but meet point & route changes weekly.

                    Thanks for the quick replies, I'm getting weekly lessons now, but also itching to get out and get more practice, but unfortunately don't know anyone to ride with yet and can't ride alone, even around the block.
                    Good to know the rides are every week, I will hopefully make it to one sometime in the next few weeks

                              I'm keen,

                              also if possible, if any one is riding from down Armadale ways; I have a friend who would be keen provided he could get a shadow for his 250. Please let me know if anyone could do that.
