Where the learning never ends

Ride Alive Motorcycle Academy was created by the same motivation that brought you to this site, a deep rooted passion for riding. Owners and Rider-Coaches at Ride Alive have over 200 years of combined riding experience. This translates to over a 98% success rate for the Basic Rider Course student. The entire staff is dedicated to making your experience here the best and safest it can be.

Our commitment goes beyond graduation, you are a life long student at Ride Alive. Questions will be answered and concerns will be resolved free of charge for as long as you ride. We also bring people back for refreshers and remedial help when needed at no additional cost to previous students.
