JB CHS annual motorcycle safety event

By Airman 1st Class Jared Trimarchi Joint Base Charleston Public Affairs

All Joint Base Charleston's military members who drive motorcycles are required to attend this year's annual motorcycle safety briefing Mar. 25 at 8:30 a.m. at the Joint Base Charleston - Air Base theater.

After the hour-long brief, riders will have the opportunity to participate in a motorcycle mentoring ride throughout the Low Country ending at Marrington Plantation on JB CHS - Weapons Station.

"Although the safety event is not mandatory for civilians and dependents who ride motorcycles, the motorcycle safety brief is highly recommended," said Stuart Wyatt, 628th Air Base Wing chief of ground safety. "No matter how often you ride your bike, you'll still learn something."

Schedule of events:

8:30 a.m. Briefing at theater

10 a.m. Briefing at Coliseum by North Charleston Police Department

10:45 a.m. Suspension demonstation by Kenny Rodriguez

12:30 p.m. Lunch, briefings and discussions at Short Stay Recreational Facility

3 p.m. Briefing at Marrington Plantation picnic grounds

3:30 p.m. Announce winners of Scavenger Hunt

The motorcycle safety brief will satisfy JB CHS military rider's annual safety requirement.
