Why Appalachian Rider Education Program?

Mr. Jim Cook, our late owner and founder, has loved motorcycles since he first began riding at the age of 8 years old. Mr. Cook and his cousin, Jacky Morrell, grew up close in age and more like brothers. Tragically, Jacky was killed in a motorcycle accident at the young age of 17. After getting involved with the Motorcycle Safety Foundation, Jim realized that he could make a difference in young person's lives by creating a scholarship foundation in honor of his cousin. The foundation, which is 100% donation funded, pays for school aged persons to take our class at little to no charge to them. We never want a family to have to go through what Jim’s family did because they can’t afford the course. Money should not be the reason someone gets hurt, or worse, on a Motorcycle. At Appalachian Rider Ed, we are all passionate about what we do because we know it saves lives. We also know it teaches so much more then just how to ride a motorcycle and we all appreciate the opportunity to be a part of others Motorcycle journey. We have the best job in the world, and we're thankful for it!
Please note that we do not advocate Motorcycle riding for everyone, we do however advocate that IF you are going to ride that you should learn to ride safe by taking a Motorcycle Safety Course.


If you or someone you know would like more information about the Scholarship Foundation please email us at 
If you would like to donate to our Scholarship Foundation and help a young person learn how to be a better car driver, gain more confidence, and become a safer motorcyclist for tomorrows community, we would greatly appreciate it and they would be blessed at your generosity.
