Course Detail

Basic 3-Wheel is a course that prepares students to ride a three-wheeled vehicle on the street. No prior experience is required. A Can-Am Ryker training vehicle and helmet is provided.

The course provides four hours of range (on-bike) instruction. Practice riding starts with the basics and gradually adds more complex skills. By the end of the riding session, students will be able to corner, brake and swerve with confidence.

Team Oregon has partnered with BRP, which provides the Can-Am Ryker models used in training. These vehicles are reverse trikes (two wheels in front, one in back) and offer great stability. The techniques learned in the course will transfer to other three-wheeled vehicles, like traditional trikes, but there are handling differences that should be taken seriously. We advise additional instruction if you intend to ride a traditional trike or sidecar rig.

Basic 3-Wheel is recommended for new and experienced riders unfamiliar with three-wheeled vehicles. To become a skilled 3-wheel operator, course graduates will need to invest purposeful practice time and seek additional training.

Eligibility Requirements

Basic 3-Wheel participants must be 15 years or older and present valid ID. Out-of-state and international ID is accepted for course enrollment. Students younger than 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign the required waiver form.

Three-wheeled training bikes are provided. A DOT-approved helmet and full protective riding gear is required. Loaner helmets are available. Students must provide their own eye protection, jacket, long pants, full-fingered gloves and over-the-ankle footwear. Find full detail in What to Bring.
