Let’s Ride.

Whether you’re a seasoned rider with years in the saddle, or someone who has only sat on a bike and made “vroom-vroom” noises, we’ll teach you the fine art of safe, confident riding.

For over 20 years now, Total Rider has introduced more than 30,000 Central Texans to the joy of on-street riding. We provide professional instruction, M-class certification, closed-course venues and training bikes… you only have to supply a positive attitude and a willingness to learn.

Please take a bit of time to explore our site for in-depth information as to what you need for class… from what the online course entails, to the kind of gear you’ll need for rider training. We are always here to help, answer any questions, and make learning to ride an experience of a lifetime!
