Take up the Ride Forever #beabetterrider challenge and show us what you've got.

Challenge yourself to be a better rider

YOU'RE CHALLENGED TO BE A BETTER RIDER!

From November 2016 to March 2017, Ride forever posted videos of four basic manoeuvres all riders should be able to do, and challenged you to show us what you’ve got by posting a video of you doing each of them (check out the four manoeuvres further down the page).

Ride forever now have a NEW challenge for you—the offset weave. Take the challenge and get a mate to video you doing it, then post your video to your Facebook page with the hashtag #beabetterrider. Make sure your post is public so we can see it.

Whether it’s done perfectly or it all goes pear-shaped, not to worry, Ride forever have  got another $500 riding jacket up for grabs. All publically posted #beabetterrider videos of riders attempting the offset weave challenge will go into the draw to win. And even if you don’t win the jacket, you’ll automatically qualify for a free Ride Forever course.
