Riding a motorcycle is one of the most liberating activities in life and can be a very rewarding hobby.

Namriders motorcycle school started in 2018 and has two instructors - Eric Rozental and Pineas Endjala. Rozental is French and before coming to Namibia to start a new life he was a flight instructor in the United States. Upon arrival in Namibia, he diverted to tourism.

“Both Pineas and I are very passionate about motorcycles and teaching people how to ride them. Combining passion and skills is a very natural trait for both of us,” Rozental says.

The reason why Namriders was established was to be in a position to provide quality motorcycle training, improve rider safety and make riding accessible to a much wider audience by reducing the costs.

“The idea was to change the local approach to individual transport. Buying a small motorcycle is much more affordable than a car. A small motorcycle is very efficient and economical for daily commuting.

“If you look at any big city in the world, particularly in densely populated areas, you have a large number of motorcycles used for daily commuting, even as taxis in some cities. In Windhoek, most people still rely on taxis which makes the traffic crazy at peak hours. Therefore, developing the use of motorcycles could be the answer to easy commuting,” Rozental says.

People grow up thinking that riding a bike is for rich people but that is not the case at all. Anyone over 18 years old with a motorcycle learner’s licence can join Namriders for riding lessons.

After five years Namriders hopes to continue promoting motorcycling through accessible and professional teaching. This all depends on the public developing the desire and open-mindedness to ride a bike.
