As I eluded to in my review of the 2-Day Fun Camp, Rich Oliver's Mystery School is more than just getting sideways with your friends for a couple of days. With the 2020 ROMS schedule in place, here is more of what you can do on the nearly 14 acres just outside of Fresno.
Learn To Ride Off-Road Course
This one-day class is designed to offer a proper introduction to the sport of off-road motorcycling. Literally no motorcycling experience necessary, Rich will teach you all of the basic skills needed to ride a motorcycle. From learning how to use the basic controls to understanding how to balance in an off-road environment, students will walk away from this course ready to ride. This course is perfect for families or people that want to get their feet wet before cannonballing into a dealership and dropping a bunch of money on a bike and gear. If you are planning on bringing the household with you, make sure the kiddos are at least 7 years old and have been riding a bicycle for at least a year.
Students can focus 100% on their riding as the ROMS staff takes care of lunch, snacks, drinks, and photographic proof for instagram. All riding gear and a size appropriate Yamaha TT-R are also included in the $299 price of admission. If you bring a friend, you both get 25 bucks off, and lets face it riding with friends is much more fun.
Off-Road Challenge Course
This is the logical next step for graduates of the Learn To Ride Off-Road course, but taking the level one class is not mandatory. As long as you can already ride a motorcycle the Off-Road Challenge course will teach you what you need to know to finally start taking that adventure bike of yours on an adventure beyond your trip to Starbucks.
If hill climbs, river crossings, jumps, sand, mud, and tight turns through the woods sounds like fun, than this is the 1-day course for you. Like the basic course, it is all inclusive letting you enjoy the school without distractions. Pricing can be as low as $324 per person if you bring a friend with you, something I plan to do in the very near future.
For the Kids
It isn't all about riding at ROMS. In the Home School Kids Dirt Bike Club, the Kids Ride and Wrench Camp, and the Kids Ride and Wrench Summer Camp, bike maintenance gets a bit of the spotlight. Teaching kids this important skill set at an early age will hopefully keep the sport alive for generations to come.
For Johnny Law
The Two-Day P.O.S.T. approved Police Officer Motorcycle Update Course (#32575; Plan I for those of you in uniform that understand those numbers) is specifically designed to enhance the officer's ability to avoid accidents and injury. This is done by teaching and practicing a variety of pursuit techniques. 16 hours worth of drills that include tight u-turns, obstacles, and the standard sliding and braking exercises combine to make a better performing officer.
Rich does offer some private days as well, in case you want something a bit more personal.
