The Advanced RiderCourse is a one-day course for experienced riders who desire to learn and practice more in-depth riding techniques.  The ARC is an action oriented class geared to introduce concepts in time and space management. The overarching goal is to provide sufficient technical information, dynamic performance feedback, and peer group interaction to achieve an increase in perceptual filtering capacities to reduce risk while riding.  In the classroom the focus is on decision making, goals, and personal limits. Classroom activities use small group discussions and interactive activities to address personal risk management strategies; to discuss options for cornering, braking and swerving; and to improve visual perception to identify collision traps. The intention is to direct and motivate riders to recognize their role in improving their skills while actively applying strategies to reduce the risks of riding.
