Try the Ride to Live Online Motorcycle Training Game

Truth be told, Australia has some of the most active programs concerning road safety and they involve both motorcycles and cars, so we can really talk about a 360-degree approach to safety. The Ride to Live campaign is aimed at motorcycle riders, and the online skills test is just a part of it.

I have to be sincere and admit that I got unnerved with the website application, but mostly because it's been long past the days I was a rookie. The tips and tricks presented there are most likely a great treat for fellows who are only thinking about becoming licensed and who have zero traffic experience.

Still, the designer of the test could do well to enlarge a bit the field of vision for the online test, as it seems to support the (false) claims of those who say that motorcycle helmets restrict vision. This is NOT how a rider sees life while wearing a helmet, so for the sake of truth, please update the interface.

Observe the road signs and pay attention to what's happening around you

The application is a great way to show new and future riders what they will be up against once they're on two wheels, on the road. From observing speed limits and other road signs to making various decisions, Ride to Live offers a glimpse into what riding a motorcycle on public roads is like, but in the safe, virtual environment.

Together with riding courses, such skills test can help a new rider experience traffic in a safe way and teach him or her about the small mistakes that can lead to big consequences.

However, the Ride to live website has cool reading for seasoned riders, as well, as multiple articles and videos present in detail a multitude of factors that influence a ride. From how to choose a helmet to braking distances, tips for avoiding rider fatigue, first aid advice or pillion hints, both future/new and skilled riders can find something they didn't know about.

After all, learning how to ride a bike in ALL conditions and scenarios is an endless process. Below you can watch an older Ride to Live advert focusing on learning how to make the right decisions. Take your time to sort through the resources on the website because riding in the real life usually doesn't provide second chances.
