BikeSafe is revving its way back to Warwickshire

BIKESAFE workshops are revving their way back to Warwickshire.

The UK’s number one police-led motorcycle safety initiative takes place over 14 Sundays from April to October.

During the one day workshop, the BikeSafe trainers will take participants through a mix of classroom based training and police observed rides to help them fine-tune the skills and techniques they need to improve their safety on two wheels.

The observed ride with a police graded motorcyclist covers attitude, observation, cornering, overtaking, filtering, junctions, group riding, hazard awareness and the system of motorcycle control.

The workshops take place at Warwickshire Police Headquarters in Leek Wootton and cost £65 per rider.

Sergeant Shaun Bridle said: “Ongoing training is the key to becoming a safer, more skilled rider and with this is the added benefit that riding a motorcycle becomes more enjoyable. We also fully understand that with time invested in quality post-test training, comes less rider risk and reductions in motorcycle casualty statistics.

“While we are encouraging bikers to take responsibility for their own safety by continuously refreshing and improving their motorcycle skills, we are also asking drivers to please take extra care and look properly for bikers particularly at T-junctions where almost a third of motorcycle collisions occur.”
