Yamaha Riding Academy for Kids
Yamaha Canada and Canadian Motorcycle Training Services are proud to present the Yamaha Riding Academy exclusively at the Calgary Motorcycle Show. The Academy offers a free opportunity for kids aged 6 - 12 (certain conditions apply) to take a ride on the latest Yamaha TT-R off-road motorcycle. With certified instruction, the latest motocross gear and a 15-minute riding session, your child will be safely introduced to the wonderful world of off- road riding. Participation is limited to 8 riders at a time during scheduled session hours.
In the last 8 years over 15,000 children have learned to ride through participation in the Academy which emphasizes safety, proper riding equipment and introductory basics such as braking, balance and throttle control. The TT-R minibikes are equipped with a throttle restricted governing feature that allows technique to be mastered at slow speeds to promote riding safety and having fun. All safety equipment is supplied for the kids. A visit to the Yamaha Riding Academy is a great way to get them started in an activity that will bring a lifetime of enjoyment!
