Four photographs of motorcycle skills challenge event

The Burnaby RCMP is inviting riders to attend the detachment’s third annual Motorcycle Safety Skills Challenge. This exciting event will take place on May 13 from 8:30 am to 4 pm at the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club parking lot. Women riders only are from 8:30 am till 10 am and 10 am till 4 pm is open to all riders.

The main attraction for this event will be the obstacle course. This obstacle course is based on the RCMP motorcycle recertification which tests the skills of motorcyclists as they make their way skillfully through the cones. Everyone who attempts the skills challenge will be entered for a chance to win the grand prize.

Specially trained motorcycle officers will be on hand to answer your questions about how to ride more safely with a special emphasis on dawn and dusk riding. We will share the most up-to-date information on the latest motorcycle laws including details on learner and new motorcycle licences. You can also have an officer conduct a safety inspection to help you identify common defects so that you don’t compromise your road safety.

The Officer-in-Charge of the Burnaby Detachment, Chief Superintendent Stephan Drolet says that the Burnaby RCMP wants to give motorcyclists the skills and confidence they need to ride safely. It will be a unique opportunity for the public to train like we train and I encourage motorcyclists to take the challenge.

Please join us at this exciting and free event.
