MCIA TryRIDE, offers the first step from pillion to licence holder.

Have you always stuck to riding pillion, but wondered what it was like to be the one up front making all the decisions?  Then it’s time to take the next step with MCIA TryRIDE.

Every day during the show – MCIA TryRIDE will offer free 20 minute motorcycle lessons with a professional instructor and provide protective clothing too.

Participants will be introduced to the brakes, gears and slow speed handling, which gives visitors the chance to see if a life on two wheels is for them. This is highly likely, since over 97% of the 4000 riders who answered a survey about their experience said they enjoyed it.

MCIA TryRIDE is open to anyone aged 14 or over and is absolutely free.

It is equally suitable for someone who’s thinking of returning to riding, or for complete beginners.

An entrance ticket to the show is required to take part in this feature.  Visitors are encouraged to bring their own riding equipment, however equipment will remain available for those not able to bring their own.
