BikeSafe – a national police-led motorcycle project; offers practical advice about road safety and educates riders by passing on knowledge and skills. The workshop encourages motorcyclists to take post-test training, which can realise their best potential and help them to become better, safer riders.
Supported by the six local authorities in the North Wales Police region, the workshops are held throughout the year and the last session for 2018 will be held at Rhyl Community Fire Station on Sunday 14th October.
North Wales Police’ BikeSafe Co-ordinator Paul Cheshire said: “So far in 2018 almost 200 BikeSafe workshop applications have been submitted across the North Wales area – from residents and non-residents. The feedback we get is extremely positive – they like the informal element of the classroom-based workshop and enjoy meeting a mixture of people. Some of our previous students have even returned to become BikeSafe volunteers.
“Motorcycles are a vulnerable class of vehicle. They don’t offer the same protection that a car can offer, but that doesn’t mean to say you can’t stay safe. With the last workshop for 2018 scheduled for next week why not enrol so you can improve your level of skill to make your riding not only safer but more enjoyable.”
The day initially starts with a group discussion followed by a practical session covering approximately 60 miles, allowing participants to take in the beautiful scenery of North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park.
