Riding Gear (for the range)

Following is a list of "Riding Gear" that you MUST bring with you to class in order to ride the training bikes. Actual "Protective Gear" for riding on the street will be discussed during your first classroom session.

1) Sturdy over-the-ankle low-heeled footwear (boots or high-top shoes). It is best to stay away from boots with very thick toes such as steel toed boots or high heels.
What will work: Motorcycle boots, cowboy boots, high-top sneakers, most hiking boots.
What will NOT work: Regular sneakers, Converse basketball shoes (not "sturdy"). Basically any shoes that do not FULLY cover the ankle and/or are not sturdy.

2) Long non-flare denim pants or material of equivalent or better durability. No holes, slits or cuts. Please leave your fashion jeans at home. :-)

3) Long-sleeved shirt or jacket (remember summer temperatures, light colors are better)

4) Full-fingered gloves: Preferably leather, however any type of gloves (even gardening gloves) will work as long as they are full-fingered.

5) Eye protection (sunglasses, prescription glasses, goggles, or a helmet with a face shield). Remember, we do provide helmets, but you may bring your own if you wish and if it's at least D.O.T. approved.

In addition, we also SUGGEST that you bring:

- Non-alcoholic beverage to drink (water is supplied at both the classroom and range)
- Snack food (snacks and drinks are also available at a minimal cost in the classroom)
- Rain Gear if you have it (Welcome to Texas – If you don’t like the weather, wait 30 minutes)
- Sun block
- Folding chair for breaks

Very Important for the 2-Day Weekend Classes
During the Summer Months (June, July, August, September)
- Small Cooler with Gatorade (Stay away from carbonated drinks)
- Load up on water during lunch
- Folding chair for breaks
- Hand towel that you can wet with cold water
