A great article posted by a PRS Alumni, discussing the trials and tribulations of the parking lot experience, feeling dejected, overcoming the internal pressures and expectations, and kicking butt!Naturally Calamity Jane, Retired (injured) Runner * New Cyclist * Writer * Nurse * Just a girl in the city who's determined to show up for herself and make the best damn life she can. I have fallen down, stood tall, felt joy and grief and the overwhelming humanness of this experience. Oh and I still believe in love.

Some written comments from some familiar people
|“Control, Pure and Simple. From this spring forth all good things about riding a motorcycle. I give riders the tools for control at the intermediate and advance level. If you are looking for a good place to build a strong understanding of control, you can trust the instructors at Pacific Riding School. Why? Because I trained them. They can ride and they can teach, but most importantly, they are always open to learning.”

|“Learning to ride can be fairly intimidating, but schools such as Pacific Riding School will teach you the skills you need to be a safe rider.”
Pacific Riding School on The Province
|“As a motor journalist, I understand the need to thoroughly research a topic or subject matter. During my fact finding mission to ferret out the best riding school in the lower mainland, Pacific Riding School presents a distinct advantage over competitors. With each lead instructor bringing a minimum of 20 years riding experience to the theory and practical settings. Their background knowledge and teaching abilities have been invaluable to me. Thanks Guys, I could not have made it this far without you!”
Host of Driving Television
|“They are the best at what they do. Their dedication and enthusiasm is shown, when you see the same guys out there week after week, saving a life every time. They even trained my wife!”

|“Finding a qualified instructor should be your number one concern, whether you train at the advance level or the basic rider training. The guys at PRS are some of the best in the industry…look at their facts, I think you will agree.”

|“From the beginning it was clear that this was a well organized, structured and planned course. Everyone involved with the school was knowledgeable, approachable, experienced and skilled.”

Head, Department Of Surgery, Richmond Hospital
|“Eric has called me a couple of times since he started the course and has told me how impressed he has been with the quality and thoroughness of the training you provide. He is eager to get his license and get his motorcycle on the road now that he has “tasted” the enjoyment and freedom of 2 wheels.”
