Motorcycle Safety Classes to restart

Under the guidance of Aaron Rowell, Garrison Safety Office, the GSO will be providing several motorcycle rider courses that have been delayed due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.


“Riders throughout the region are anxious to hop on their bikes and enjoy some highway air, especially since many states have implemented travel restrictions over the past several weeks,” said Rowell, a safety and occupational health specialist at the Fort Meade GSO.


“Although returning to work will be a gradual process, it is important to remind riders that they must wear the required personal protective equipment prior to riding on post.”


Information about the classes has been shared at the Installation Synchronization meetings open to tenant unit representatives, according to the GSO.


The GSO advises course attendees to consult the online AIRS link since the schedule is subject to change.


The GSO has had to consolidate two experience rider classes originally scheduled for July 10 with those scheduled for next Friday (July 17) since there were not enough sign ups to conduct a class.


Following is the current schedule of classes:


Basic Rider Course –July 14-15, 21-22, 23-24, 27-28


Experienced Rider Course – July 17, 20, 29


Military Sport Rider Course – July 31
