"Thank you Pro Rider for teaching this life saving lessons in such a way and thanks to ACC for sponsoring this, so it is affordable to do. I am quite new to bike riding and was quite nervous at the start of the day. But as the day progressed, my confidence levels grew. I really can recommend this. I learned so much."
