What's a track day? A track day is when we rent out a race track for the day and sell you a spot to come ride on it. We split up our riders into 3 groups, beginner, intermediate, advanced. Before you let your pride put you in the wrong group, beginner just means at the track, your 15 years of ripping on the street doesn't count here so cool it. Pride at the track leads to ambulance rides. We also can move you throughout the day group to group if there's space, if it's too fast, we can move you down a group, or if you're too fast, we can move you up.

During the sessions, we have blue vested control riders riding around watching everything and everyone, they respond to any incidents, help riders with lines if they need help, etc. We also have orange vested instructors on track, and they'll be leading around students in green vests. They're taking the schools we offer and getting on track instruction and feedback from our fantastic and well experienced instructors.

We limit our groups to 40 riders max per group. We do this for safety and fun for everyone, there's more open track for you to ride around on.

We ride the track in 20 minute increments, group 3 rides at 9am, group 2 at 920, group 1 at 940, then repeats throughout the day. So you get 20 minute rides on the track every hour. It may not sound like much but, you'll be nice and sore sooner than you think

The track is a great place to learn to ride your motorcycle. Fast, slow, street bike, sport bike, cruiser or adventure. It's where you can learn to brake, corner, body position, accelerate, safely without speed limits, cops, cars, kids, potholes etc. The skills you learn at the track directly correlate with your safety and fun on the street.

We also offer schools for level 1 and level 2 that are great at laying down basic fundamentals and then build upon them. It's a great way to refresh on riding techniques, and also learn something new.

We have some rules, you gotta wear gear, over the ankle boots, gloves, a helmet that hasn't been crashed in before, and a leather or textile suit, 1 piece or 2 piece but it has to zip together. Your motorcycle has to pass a technical inspection. In the morning you register, then take your bike through tech and we give it a once over making sure your bike is in good running order.

We have vendors and sponsors at the track to provide you with things like tires, suspension services, bike demos from dealers, etc.

There's a lot that goes into a track day but it's 100% worth it. If you have questions, please ask as we're here to help!

Fun day @ the Ridge, thanks OPRT. The weather cooled a bit from Sunday and a nice breeze blew all day Monday, keeping temps in the shade (canopies) comfortable. Whoop!
Not sure what was up today with that country that looks like a boot and makes motorcycles...

Had an absolute blast today. Just got home and unloaded after 6 hours plus of driving but totally worth it. The Ridge is a great track and OPRT puts on a great event! Biggest discrepancy in all the group's I've seen yet made for interesting riding and watching.
