I don't know if everyone checks out 'Events' on BCSB, but there are some good events, and tonight there is a New Rider Network evening above
5thGear in Richmond.
It's geared to new riders, no egos, just good fun, good info, and some nice prizes to boot!
Also, in 'Articles', Bruce put up a sticky called 'Reminders for a safer spring'
It doesn't have everything, but it's got some great reminders to consider before hauling your bike out for that first spin.
There are some good articles here and there, and it's worth a browse.
Riding is more fun when your ass stays on the seat!
Ride smart, have fun.
