Motorcyclists can sign up for BikeSafe courses with Cambridgeshire police in March 2023
Cambridgeshire police is offering BikeSafe courses again from March, helping to keep motorcyclists safe on the roads.
Officers from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Road Policing Unit will run the national police-led motorcycle initiative, working alongside riders in a relaxed environment to raise awareness of the value of progressing to accredited post-test training.
There are two workshops, priced at £65 each. The first features theory from an experienced police motorcyclists, with the second - to be booked soon after the first - featuring an observed ride with an advanced motorcyclist. The workshops will cover areas such as riders’ attitude to risk, systematic methods, the cause of collisions, cornering, road position, overtaking, observation, braking, hazard perception and management and use of gears.
Sgy Russell Jones, from the unit, said: “Motorcyclists are one of the most vulnerable road users which is why hosting BikeSafe workshops is so important. Even for the most experienced of riders, these courses are a great way to refresh your skills and learn how to avoid dangers on the roads, in a relaxed environment.
“We want to reduce motorcycle casualties, and we hope that the increased hazard awareness and skills that the riders will learn from BikeSafe will have a positive impact on reducing the number of bikers injured on our roads.”
