This basic course spans five days in an effort to include as much information and practical application of skills as possible for the student (firearms and off road riding will be included). Although it is not necessary to be an accomplished athlete to participate in and successfully complete this course, students should be physically capable of, and must have recently accomplished, riding ten miles at a moderate pace (12-15 mph) without stopping. A certified bike mechanic should inspect all bikes to be used by students before bringing them to class; special attention should be paid to the brakes and shifting mechanisms, this helps minimize the time spent by instructors repairing and adjusting bicycles. Each bike must have at least one water-bottle cage and one water bottle, a tool pouch of some sort, and "toe-clips and straps" on the pedals. In addition, each participant will need 50 rounds of duty ammunition, duty weapon and gun belt for the firearms block of instruction.
