STAR Advanced Riding Practice and Safety Day


STAR Chapters of Virginia have been invited to participate in a day of riding practice focused on reviewing and practicing both basic and advanced riding and crash avoidance techniques. The practice day will be led by the STAR VA Ambassador, Rick Davis and is being hosted by STAR 208 at Commonwealth Power Sports (, 2000 Waterside Road, Prince Georges, VA 23875.

STAR 474 will have two departure points for this event:
A group will leave from Coleman Power Sports (httP:// on Telegraph Rd, Woodbridge, VA at 08:00 to meet with the second group just off of US-17 at the Shell Station, 12 Sanford Rd. Fredericksburg, VA. The entire group will depart at 08:40 making one gas/rest/food stop at the Valero Station 7040 Creighton Rd, Mechanicsville, VA. We will depart there at 09:50 to ride the remaining 30 miles to Commonwealth Power Sports. Total distance from the start point for this ride day is about 270 to 300 miles.
Training practice starts at 11:00 and is expected to end between 3 and 4 pm. After practice we will ride to the local Golden Coral for a late Lunch/early Dinner then return home via I-95 with riders breaking off at their exits as we go.

If you have not RSVPed please do so by noon 19 March so I can respond to host with estimated numbers. Clearly you can change your mind to join us later if your situation changes.

    Weather is looking like it's going to be a great day to ride. Highs near 60 and partly cloudy. Let's see if it can get better.
