"Finally having a riding school on the coast is great. Before Strait Away Riders I was
considering going to Vancouver to take a weekend course. The added cost was not sitting
well with me and then I heard about Strait Away Riders. The fact that Sarah saw an
opportunity for local riders to learn on roads they already know is so awesome! As for the
new riders course itself, my riding skills went to a whole new level after completing it.
Sarah is a great instructor and made the whole process fun and informative. If you're new
to riding or need to sharpen up your skills and live on the Sunshine Coast you simply can't
go wrong with Sarah and Straight Away Riders!" ~ Chris Hulls
