OK the program which was released this week but overshadowed by the VicPol stuff is at this location... If you are eligible I strongly urge you to go for it. It will be some really good on-road mentoring and you get a $90 voucher for it. Enrol in the VicRide: on-road coaching program and take a 4 hour on-road coached ride with two other recently licensed riders and an experienced rider trainer who will give you feedback on your riding style. The program is being delivered as part of a research project to understand the impact of the VicRide: on-road coaching program on motorcyclist safety. Because it is a research project, there are a couple of important things you need to know before continuing: * Half of the participating riders will take part in the coached on-road ride 1-4 weeks after enrolling (the Ride Group). The other half of the group will take part in this ride at the end of the study in about 12 months time (the Delayed Ride Group). * If you agree to take part, you will be allocated to one of these groups randomly by computer. This means you cannot choose whether to take part in the ride immediately or at the end of the 12 months. * Riders in both groups will be interviewed about their riding experience at three stages over the 12 months. * Riders in the Delayed Ride Group are really important to the study. By comparing their progress to that of the group who take part in the on-road ride immediately, we will be able to determine whether any differences are due to the program or just general riding experience. * Riders in both groups will receive a $90 gift card and a free high visibility vest to compensate for their time. The on-road ride will take place at one of four locations: Somerton, Kilsyth, Warragul or Bendigo. In order to take part in the on-road ride, you must: * hold a probationary or restricted Victorian motorcycle licence (if you hold a learner permit you need to wait until you have gained your motorcycle licence before you can take part) * have ridden at least 500 km on-road over a minimum of 12 rides since obtaining your learner permit * be in the first year since you gained your motorcycle licence (i.e. on a LAMS restriction) * ride your own motorcycle (minimum of 125cc, no scooters) * have mastered basic motorcycle riding skills.
