BikeSafe – Police led safety initiative
BikeSafe is available via most UK Police Forces and is aimed at improving motorcycle riding skills, whilst reducing the number of motorcycle casualties. Through workshops and observed rides, BikeSafe participants have the opportunity to uncover their own riding weaknesses, whilst learning how to improve their motorcycle riding skills.
The purpose of this initiative is to empower riders to embrace the value of ongoing motorcycle training, whilst generally addressing a number of attitudes and riding behaviours that seem still to be at the route of unacceptable motorcycle accident statistics. Organisers acknowledge the importance of post-test motorcycle training, whilst serving as a good stepping-stone to advanced training with the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM), Royal Society for Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS).
BikeSafe riding development plan
In summary, BikeSafe is passionate about reducing motorcycle casualties, whilst helping riders to address their own vulnerability. It is a Police-led, UK-wide, post-test motorcycle safety scheme that allows motorcycle riders of all skill levels to ride with qualified Police riders, to be observed by them and to receive highly valuable motorcycle skills and safety feedback. What follows is a riding development plan, including recommendations for ongoing motorcycle training.
