MRH crossroads 3/11-12

Just signed up at crossroads for my BRC
Never rode a bike before but i have one waiting..
It seems like this school is kinda tough after reading the policy

English is not my first language so i thought it might be a problem for me. Does people actually fail in those courses?

Pay attention, listen to your instructor, and you should do fine. These courses are designed for people who've never been on a bike. They'll teach you what you need to know. Good luck.

You should be fine like Hurst said they are designed for the new rider. From what I remember the only way you can fail is if you are completely unsafe.

Failure=if you drop the bike during the test too. I had a guy drop his bike and automatically failed. It was so sad because he just cracked under pressure. He did amazing all the days before the test.

I took the course there too. Do not be late for any reason. Show up 15 minutes early with gear ready and listen as they do not repeat the course of action several times. Out on the range there will be a demonstration of what you will do, then you get on the bike and do the demonstration. Bring lots of Gatorade, It helps a lot if you bring a rag to wipe your face and body off if it is extremely hot. I took the course in August in 105 degree heat...I was prepared!

Enjoy it! Written test is EZ!

I'm not instructing the midweek, pay attention to the above comments. Come with an open mind, enthusiasm, and prepare to have some fun. Reading the policy in your email is important-these are the same rules regardless who you take the class with. If your not sure of an exercise make sure that you ask questions, but wait until after the demos-some of it may become clear after watching the demonstrations. Don't stress yourself and you will be fine-just remember you will not become an accomplished rider after two days of practice.
