Help Us Decide – 6th National Riding Skkool in St. Louis?

Help Us Decide – 6th National Riding Skkool in St. Louis?


I’m afraid that location arrangements for this year’s National Trikke Riding Skkool have all gone awry.  It was to be announced for later this year.  But, sad to say it, sometimes, things just aren’t how they seem.  

Therefore, we are considering, either cancelling the NRS for this year, or doing a last minute switch and have it to coincide with the Academy in St. Louis, – on the weekend of June 11th & 12th.

With only a little over 4 weeks remaining, which is not much time for guests to plan, we need to hear from you.   

If we receive a minimum of 10 sign ups, …It’s On.   AND…

As a thank you, everyone who fills out the registration form and submits a deposit within the next week will receive a sizable discount.

However, if we receive less than 10, we will refund all deposits and will continue with plans for next year’s N.R.S.  (To be announced later this year.)  

We will make that decision beginning of next week, so please let us know if you can take part in what has become a cherished event in the Trikke community.  

If you would like to register for this year’s Trikke National Riding Skkool, simply fill out this form.

A $50 deposit is required.  If this event is cancelled, full refund of deposits will be issued.

The full 2 days of training is $350 with a $50 deposit.  Register by Wednesday, May 18th and you’ll register at the discounted price if $250  This includes all of the classes for Saturday & Sunday in addition to the hosted reception, goodie bag, and a special addition 6th National Riding Skkool shirt.

St. Louis is the home of our very first National Riding Skkool which was so much fun and a big success.  Check out some photos from the 1st National Riding Skkool in St. Louis the summer of 2010.

NRS 2015 Recap and Gallery

NRS 2015 Recap and Gallery

“Trikkers… Start Your Carving!”

That was the call out on Saturday, Aug. 15 2015 as we all prepared to roll onto the storied oval of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

And what a monumental weekend it was!

Each year, Trikke Academy hosts the National Riding Skkool in a different location, each location providing its own unique experience and charm.

This year, we were honored to host the N.R.S in Indianapolis, Indiana! We want to send out a three-armed Thank You hug to all who attended.

Having 66 Trikkes carve around the Indy track (umm… the Indy Trakk) together was not only fun, it was inspiring!

Luckily, we were also able to offer some pre-track riding instruction both on Friday and Saturday for anyone not attending the NRS. So, everyone was able to get their riding game on early.

Hope to see you at the next National Riding Skkool!

We’ll be announcing the 2016 N.R.S. date and location soon.

Stay tuned!

Expectations were exceeded! I know what I can work on to make the carve beneficial. I’m just thrilled my daughter Cassie can now carve. She is so excited! Cassie actually took her Trikke home! She is now carving on the paths in her neighborhood. (Cassie received the Trikke as a Xmas gift several years ago and it’s been hanging in my garage!) I now have a partner!

Our students tell us that they chose which Academy course to attend based on a variety of factors, including: 

  • Time of year/season
  • Proximity to a Trikke dealer
  • The appeal of the city in which the course is held

Other factors to consider are:

  • Timing – Which course best fits your calendar?   
  • Plus-one – Do you want to bring your spouse, close relative, business partner, etc.? 
  • Hotel price/package – You are never obligated to stay at the hotel we recommend, but that hotel is often the site of some (if not all) of the class(es). If you do not stay at the hotel we choose, you may need to make sure you have transportation to and from it (or make sure you are within trikking distance).
  • Rental car – Whenever possible, we choose a hotel that is close enough to an airport that a shuttle or taxi can provide inexpensive transportation to the Academy location.  Be sure to ask if your hotel offers shuttle service! 
  • Driving to Academy – Do you live within driving distance of the Academy site? If so, you’ll have built-in wheels while you’re there, and you can bring your own trikke! 
  • Class size – We limit Academy classes to a maximum of 18 students, including guests. If class size is important to you, feel free to ask us how many students have enrolled in the course you’re interested in. (There are advantages to both bigger and smaller classes.) 

Academies are not “cookie cutter” experiences.  Each location is different and plays a role in the flow, the tone, and even the class schedule.  If you have any questions regarding the location or the Trikke Academy program please contact us.

Academy locations are chosen based on a variety of factors:   interest /  season /  dealer location /  “destination location”  / etc


Some things to consider are:


– Which best fits your calendar?   Do you want to bring your spouse, close relative, business partner, etc??


– Hotel price /package. – You are never obligated to stay in the chosen hotel.  Since that is often where at least some of the classes are held, you may need to make sure you are within trikking distance, or have transportation to and from.


– Will you even need a rental car anyway? – We often choose a hotel that is close enough to an airport that a shuttle or taxi may be less expensive.  A shuttle may also be provided by the hotel.


– Within driving distance?  (You’ll have wheels while you’re there, and can BYOtrikke.)


We keep Academy classes to a maximum of 25 sign-ups/people, — plus guests.   Class size does vary based on a variety of factors.   Please call to see if we are sold out  /at capacity /full.   There are advantages to both bigger and smaller classes.


Academies are not cookie cutter.  Each location is different, and definitely plays a role in the flow, the tone, and even the schedule.  If you have any questions regarding these locations or the program please contact us.
