Ride Like Pro South Carolina is held in Columbia, SC at the AMC movie theater located at 5320 Forest Drive (see map). Class size is limited to six(6) students. This allows for a low rider to instructor ratio and gives the students more riding time. The course of instruction is based on the Ride Like a Pro instructional DVD and Exercise Guide. Each exercise builds on the next incorporating the skills learned in the previous exercises. If you have not seen the DVD, We highly recommend that you do, as it will help you greatly with the course. You can order the DVD from Jerry’s website, ridelikeapro.com. Sign up with a friend, and make the class even more enjoyable! If you have a group or club that would like to take the course together that can be arranged as well.
