Intro to the CanAm Spyder!

Use of our CanAm Spyder and helmet is included in the tuition.

For the Pure Novice: A taste of riding a CanAm Spyder... without a big investment of time or money. Find out if riding a Spyder is for you, and if you have the basic skills needed to be prepared for the full Trike Rider Course (BRC).

Introduction to the CanAm Spyder! is a new class from Training Wheels and has been designed specifically for the brand new rider. The Course is a four-hour, hands-on private class which introduces brand new riders to the activity of riding a 3 Wheeled Motorcycle. Class sizes are a 1:1 student:coaching ratio with certified Instructor. The pace is slow, allowing maximum time for coaching, skill development, and confidence building.

Introduction to the CanAm Spyder! is intended as a precursor to the 2 day Trike Rider Licensing Course. If you are unsure of your abilities, are unsure if the Spyder is the right activity for you, or if you just want to take a more gradual approach to learning to ride, consider the Introduction to the CanAm Spyder!

If you decide to participate in the 2 day Trike Rider Course upon completion of the Introduction to the CanAm Spyder! session, then $50 will be applied towards your tuition. Please call 508-247-9595 to schedule an intro session.

Topics Covered:
  • Locate and operate controls
  • Coordinate semi-automatic shifting (no clutch)
  • Straight line riding
