Three years after Warwickshire Police ended their very successful BikeSafe workshops, the British Motor Museum are pleased to announce that they have become BikeSafe partners. Throughout 2016 they will be running a number of motorcycle rider skills workshops designed to hopefully make motorcycle riding safer and more enjoyable.

The workshops are run by ex-police instructors and advanced police riders as well as senior instructors from both RoSPA and IAM, all of whom were previously involved in the Warwickshire Police BikeSafe initiative from 2001-2013. They explore the main riding hazards that bikers face helping improve riders skills, knowledge and hazard awareness.

The workshops include classroom and open road sessions, covering observations, hazard perception, anticipation and planning, cornering and overtaking. Riders will also have their riding assessed out on the open road.

Neil Colledge, Workshop Instructor from the British Motor Museum and former head of the Warwickshire BikeSafe initiative said “Hundreds of motorcyclists are killed or seriously injured each year on our roads. Our workshops are run by bikers, for bikers! They are about learning to assess your riding strengths and weakness, allowing you to improve your riding skills and enable you to get the most out of your machines in a safe and responsible way”.

The first workshop is on Saturday 28 May, it is a full day and costs £65 including tuition, refreshments, a light lunch as well as an opportunity to look around the fantastic newly refurbished Museum.

For more information about the motorcycle rider skills workshops please visit www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk or call 01926 645056. The British Motor Museum will also be exhibiting at the Rugby Bike Fest on Sunday 22 May.
