  • Full Throttle Riding Academy
    Former professional motorcycle racer and 20-year veteran street rider Jason Curdy dedicates his company, Full Throttle Riding Academy—a state-sponsored school and recognized training provider of the Motorcycle Safety Foundation—to teaching motorcyclists to ride safely and respect the road. Starting with the two-day Basic Rider Course, students learn to safely maneuver their vehicles on an off-street range and study riding regulations within the classroom. By the end of the course, they’ll have the knowledge and command of their bikes necessary to start riding. Riders can also brush up on their street skills in the half-day Experienced Rider Course, which incorporates more advanced riding techniques, showing them how to optimize lane position and how not to read a book at the wheel.

  • Hyland Hills Adventure Golf and Raceway
    Hyland Hills Adventure Golf and Raceway packs an awful lot of fun into four acres of land. For starters, there are three 18-hole miniature golf courses—Lost Continent, Adventure Cove, and Buccaneer Bay—that are meticulously landscaped and enhanced with water and fire effects. Elsewhere on the grounds, an electric go-kart track and jumble of bumper cars shock leisurely putt-putters back to life. There's even a concession stand slinging burgers, hot dogs, and pizzas. And since this four-acre wonderland is owned and operated by the Hyland Hills Park and Recreation District, the revenues from all of these amusements help fund community services and school programs. But even if games, rides, and snacks aren't your thing, you can still come to gawk at the park's award-winning landscaping, which includes: 13,500 square feet of carpet 175,000 gallons of water 662 light fixtures 230 trees 1,150 shrubs 1,400 flowers in multiple varieties 6,000 spring bulbs

  • Iron Buffalo Motorcycle Training
    Erik Erikson, owner and chief motorcycle-safety instructor at Iron Buffalo Motorcycle Training, began his love affair with two-wheeled motoring in 1976. He was serving in the US Air Force, which required him to seek out a certification along with all other enlisted motorcyclists and the wisecracking pugs that rode in their sidecars. After taking several classes that didn’t fulfill his expectations for a comprehensive motorcycle-training regimen, he decided to strike out on his own. He was certified as an instructor by Motorcycle Safety Foundation in 1987, which eventually named him its Chief Instructor of the Year in 1996. Today, Erik and other his fellow instructors share their decades of experience through training courses that arm riders with the knowledge and skills to safely operate a motorcycle on our nation’s streets. Certified by the MSF and the Colorado Department of Transportation, the basic- and experienced-rider courses both build on the theme of safety. In the two-day Basic RiderCourse, new or unlicensed riders use hands-on practice with the school’s motorcycles to learn street strategies and how to avoid obstacles and polish braking skills. At the end of the two days, students can take the Colorado motorcycle-license test as a part of the course and redeem their license at a DMV, in lieu or calling your cousin who’s really good at Photoshop. For the Experienced RiderCourse, students bring their own bikes to work on advanced skills and illustrate the more theoretical aspects of riding, such as cornering, maximum braking, and emergency swerving.
