I have come across a few stunning photos of motorbike riding at Kyalami. One of my friends added these photos to Facebook and I was rather pleased to see the young faces next to the bikes!
Proper training from experienced bikers is an important tool to be used for greater safety on the road! But where can we find these trainers and how does it work?
I would like to refer to information made available by m Cubed and OTRE:
“The vision for OTRE is to introduce people to track riding. We want people to understand that there is a lot of fun to be had in track racing, a lot more so than on the unsafe South African roads. We cater for complete novices as well as competent riders and introduce them to safer ways in which to enjoy biking. There is no age requirement – we believe that one is never too young or too old to learn new things.
How it works!
First Time Track Users: An average day begins at 08h00 at Kyalami Race Track with an in depth classroom session covering the basics of track riding. The class is then split 4 students to 1 instructor. The instructor takes the group around the track, allowing them to familiarizing themselves with the track and the lines that are followed. Thereafter everyone goes back to the classroom for some more theory. The following practical session covers counter steering and braking, then putting that into practice on the track. By the end of the day, students would have completed 6 track sessions, some time in which to ride on their own and find comfort on the bike, ending off with the handing out of certificates.”
