Things get underway with She Rides Night on Friday, January 10th. All ladies that come through the door receive half price admission after 5:00 pm.
There is something for the enthusiast no matter what their skill level; from novice to seasoned rider. The Strider Adventure Zone caters to the youngsters ages 18 months to 5 years. It provides a hands-on area to help develop the fundamentals of balance and handling, in an environment designed specifically for kids. For those aged 6 to 12 the Yamaha Riding Academy is the next step. Sign your kids up for one of the sessions and they will receive information, instruction and have the chance to experience riding an off-road motorcycle on the track under the watchful eye of certified instructors.
