RTP: Building Connections

The Osan motorcyle club started in 2016 under the direction of Mr. Victor ValleDominicci. The initial goal was to give Airmen a safe space to learn, ride and network during their time at Osan Air Base. Since then, it's turned into a group of diverse Airmen from throughout the installation meeting every Saturday. Some members of the group joined the club without a bike and without knowing how to ride, but left the group with tools of resiliency they didn't know they needed.
