Looking Under the Hood at MSF

It's been a long time coming, but bikesafer.com has finally reviewed the MSF's Basic Rider Course. ET was invited to audit a course held over the Labor Day weekend, and the review explores the range exercises, classroom sessions and test content in detail.

ET gets under the tupperware and hauls out the guts for all to see. We had total access to all the material, interviewed the students, talked to the Rider Coaches and the owners of the franchise, Vickye and Harry Cunningham of Memphis's CycleSafety.net, and took lots of photos.

We didn't pull our punches. We found some problems and wrote them up.

We are very impressed by the passion and commitment displayed by the staff we met that weekend, and at the obvious progress the students made during the course.

We all have a long way to go with rider training in the USA, and MSF's Basic Rider Course is what most of us have to start with. Let's get to know it.
