The Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM)
is dedicated to doubling the number of female riders by 2020. In pursuit of this goal, they have partnered with Sarah “SeCCRet” Moreau "the Cross Country Rider
," and Reg Pridmore's CLASS Motorcycle School
to establish a scholarship program for two promising females to attend either the All Women’s Day Training event on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 (7:30 am - 4:30 pm PST), or, the 1-day co-ed school on Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 2018.
Sarah “SeCCRet” Moreau, the Cross Country Rider, is paying it forward by donating $275 toward these scholarships. Amazingly, the Pridmore's have matched SeCCRet donation affording WCM with the opportunity to offer 2 scholarships to their members in California and the surrounding area. This is dedication to the field and the growth of our beloved industry!
Reg Pridmore’s CLASS Motorcycle School, at Streets of Willow in Willow Springs, CA. is located in Southern California’s Antelope Valley, 1.5 hours north of Los Angeles. Each scholarship will cover the $275 fee for the school, but not personal travel expenses. You ride your own bike and wear your own gear. This Motorcycle school is only for those who are comfortable with riding at freeway speeds or higher and who want to learn track riding and/or become safer riders on the street. Applicants must have a minimum of 2,000 street miles of experience and feel comfortable at freeway speeds (60+MPH). A wide variety of bikes are acceptable, including many cruisers. Please check with Gigi at CLASS at (805) 933-9936 to make sure your bike is acceptable for the course.
CLASS has been teaching both men and women of all abilities and ages how to ride smoother, safer, and with more confidence for decades. The classes take place on Streets racetrack as the closed course environment removes distractions and allows the rider to safety concentrate only on their riding technique. Lap times are not recorded. The Pridmore's and their professional team of instructors are there to ensure riders have a great time! On track sessions alternate with effective and entertaining classroom instruction throughout the day. A portion of the day is also set aside for riding drills to help improve rider performance braking to a safe stop.
