INSTRUCTORS

Omar Ali
My name is Omar Ali. I was born in Trinidad and raised in Staten Island where i currently reside. I have always enjoyed riding bicycles and wanted to experience the thrill and fun of riding motorcycles. I like being an instructor because it allows me to safely teach people how to ride and at the same time share my experience of the excitement I had when I first started riding.

Joseph DejesusMy name is Joe Dejesus and I was born and raised in NYC. : Growing up, I was always riding my bicycle. When the opportunity to learn how to ride a motorcycle presented itself, I took advantage of it and have been riding ever since. One of the aspects of being an Instructor/RiderCoach that I enjoy is seeing the progression participants make as they gain skill and confidence while navigating the range exercises of the Basic Rider Course.
Richard Derevensky
My name is Rich Derevensky. I live in Montgomery NY and I have been riding for 29 years. I started motorcycling when I realized it would be more fun to ride to work instead of driving. When I started out, I wished I had someone to help me learn. As an instructor, I now get to share my experience and meet new people while doing it.
