STONE RIDGE – May is Motorcycle Safety Month.
If you ride a motorcycle, now is the season to be smart and be safe.
According to SUNY Ulster, ninety two percent of all motorcycle accidents occur to people without any formal training.
A little training can go a long way in helping you walk away from a bad situation.
SUNY Ulster, in conjunction with Motorcycle Safety School, provides motorcycle/scooter training and licensing courses for all experience levels on the Stone Ridge campus.
A variety of courses are being offered for the spring and summer months.
