Purpose

FirstRides.org is a non-profit organization aimed at increasing the number of safe motorcyclists in the world and reducing their risk. We serve the San Francisco Bay Area and can help others get set up around the country.

We do this by offering full scholarships to kids. Since the program is aimed at those who cannot afford to start riding on their own, no fees are charged at any time for children under 18. We supply the bikes, gear, and training.
