Each month Doc hosts a number of free riding clinics loosely based on the teachings of Keith Code. Enjoy a nice day of riding, and an opportunity to upgrade your skill level with Doc and his friends.

These seminars are free, and consist of a one hour lecture followed by a three hour group ride in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains.
The Doc Wong Riding Clinics are now in its 22nd year!
Enhance your riding skills, increase your enjoyment, and learn better riding survival reflexes.
Type of Motorcycle
If it has two wheels, an engine, or a motor then you’re invited.
Skill Level Required
The bottom line is that if you can safely negotiate the mountainous roads off Skyline Blvd, then you do have the minimum skills for the ride. Since these are not fast sport rides, any reasonably competent rider should be able to participate. We recommend that you be comfortable with your bike, and knowledgeable about your (and your bike’s) limitations and capabilities. If you have been riding for at least six months you’ve probably got the minimum level ofexpertise required.
A motorcycle in good mechanical condition, helmet, gloves, heavy jacket (leather or heavy material), heavy pants, boots—in other words, sensible riding attire. If you show up in shorts, tank-top, Oakley blades, and flip-flops on your feet then you may be invited to go home. You must also have a valid motorcycle license and insurance. Full leathers are encouraged, but not required. You are responsible for your own safety.
Workshop Format (Each month is a different riding skills topic)
Meet at Doc Wong's Chiropractic oiffice in Carlmont Shopping Center at 9 AM. After signing wavers, Doc Wong gives an hour lecture on the day’s riding topic. He’ll also go over Riding Within Your Abilities, Group Riding, and Road Manners. You’ll be asked to fill out an optional survey for riding feedback and health issues. Then we will be split up into small groups with ride leader volunteers to lead you thru the hills.
