CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (KGTV) -- A motorcycle training event, freestyle motocross demo, and exhibition will be held at Camp Pendleton’s Mainside Pavilion Parking Lot Wednesday, August 24th for all service members. 

Semper Ride is a partnership formed in response to the distressing amount of motorcycle incidents in the Marine Corps. The Motorcycling the Right Way! program has helped reduced 44 percent of accidents.

There are four safety awareness sessions designed to increase rider’s safety awareness and decision-making through videos, guest speakers, and an interactive question and answer session.


In addition to the training sessions is a MCCS motorcycle expo featuring motorcycles, riding gear, insurance experts, local traffic safety pros, demos, interactive exercises, giveaways, gear discounts and more! 


The freestyle motocross demos will feature Derek Burlew, Luke Dolin and Jeff Griffin, with a meet and greet with the riders after each demo sessions.
