Police officers assigned to the Winston-Salem Police Department’s Traffic Enforcement Unit have extended their free monthly motorcycle rider skills training sessions through November as part of the BikeSafe NC initiative to improve motorcycle safety.

Additional Rider Skills Days in Winston-Salem are scheduled for July 28, Aug. 25, Sept. 15, Oct. 20 and Nov. 17. These classes are free and open to anyone with a valid motorcycle endorsement (or permit) and street legal motorcycle.

At each BikeSafe Rider Skills Day, WSPD motorcycle officers assess rider skills and offer training to make riding in North Carolina safer and more enjoyable. Along with professional riding techniques, topics will include negotiating hazards and safe cornering and passing. The day-long training includes classroom sessions and on-the-road skills assessment and coaching.

Space is limited. For more information and to register go to BikeSafeNC.com.
