Im taking the MSF class at Awesome cycles. What all do/should I bring to the class. I know pants, gloves, helmet, and boots. What else should I bring?

Bring some water/gatorade, and maybe a quick snack incase you don't want to go anywhere for lunch.

Also would recommend eye protection, ie sun glasses.

Sunscreen if you burn easily. Back of the neck and wrists if there's a gap between gloves and jacket/shirt.

When I took my class back in 06 they had pens, paper, and of course you can write in the book they give you.

you don't really need a jacket.. i brought mine.. and stopped by walgreens to pick up a longsleeve shirt.. took off my jacket about 10 seconds after I put it on because it was way too hot with the lid..
you need a lid, boots, long sleeve shirt, sunglasses. I'd buy cheapos in case u fall off. you don't want 200$ oakleys scratched up. make sure u wear sorta baggy but not MC hammer pants.. slightly loose long sleeve shirt. because it gets hot.. real hot.. and I took it in March. Bring a gatorade bottle and MIO flavoring.. =P.. they provide a big tank of water. cigarettes if u smoke.. and a lighter. a few short towels to wipe your face and sweat etc.. gloves.. if you don't bring them, u can purchase in class.. at a slightly inflated reasonable price.. =P. o yeah.. bring 10$.. buy a hot girl a gremlin bell. score u some points.. tee hee.

Sunscreen is on there. We thought of it so you don't have to.

Yeah... highly recommend reading their recommendations on their site... will also save you from getting ragged on for going to the wrong place on the first morning (hint, your GPS will LIE) Being the first one there I got a little giggle out of how many people were calling because they didn't read....

Have fun
