One of the great joys of summer is 'wind therapy.'

Many bikers in Wyoming love the freedom of the open road, however there are inherent dangers that accompany pursing your two-wheel passion.

Every year there are numerous car-motorcycle accidents, some could've been avoided if only the proper riding techniques and safety tools had been applied.

WYDOT offers two safety courses for cyclists. The basic rider course, for beginners and people with limited motorcycle experience and the experienced rider course for those with three months or more experience operating a motorcycle.

Thanks to Trooper, Jason Sawdon, The Wyoming Highway Patrol, Joe McDaniels and Ian Delap for helping with this video.

Our hopes are to create awareness and cooperation between motorist and motorcyclists in Casper and around the State of Wyoming.

Ride safe Wyoming!
