Riding Academy


We at WRHD and Riding Academy take your safety seriously. In the wake of coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know what's happening in regards to our Riding Academy training season. 

We all know that motorcycling is a great way to have fun, get outdoors, and practice social distancing, especially when wearing a helmet and gloves! As of this week, however, the latest developments in our state include an extension of stay-at-home and social distancing recommendations through April 30, 2020. And while it saddens us to delay your upcoming riding experience, we have decided to cancel and reschedule our first two New Rider Courses, (originally scheduled for April 18, 2020 and April 25, 2020), in the best interest of public health,. At this time, we plan to begin our training season with the first class on May 2, 2020. 

If you are enrolled in one of our April classes, rest assured we will do everything within our power to get you riding as soon as possible. We will offer priority rescheduling along with a flexible cancelation policy, should you need to do so. You will be contacted by a member of the Riding Academy team to reschedule your class and answer any of your questions. With conditions changing day-by-day, we will continue to monitor the situation, keep you informed, and re-evaluate the situation again on or before April 30, 2020.

We know you are ready to ride, and we will do everything we can to help get you where you want to go. We appreciate your patience and flexibility, and look forward to seeing you soon. As always, you may contact us at (440) 974-6900, or  susan@wrhd.com with any questions or concerns.
