Coffee, cake and motorcycles – a natural combination

Posted on


For those who want to support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September, there will be some alternative venues this year, where motorcycles will also be on the menu!

Some of the UK’s best motorcycle and scooter training schools are inviting regular clients and those just curious about motorcycling to call in and enjoy coffee and cake, while supporting the Macmillan cause.

Karen Cole, Director of Safety and Training for the UK’s Motorcycle Industry Association, which runs MCIAC says:

“This is the first year MCIAC accredited training schools have taken part in this great cause and provides an alternative venue for those who like to support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Coffee, cakes and motorcycles mix very well, as anyone who visits the Cotswolds will know, where tea rooms are always packed with riders at the weekends!

“Motorcyclists have a long standing reputation for getting involved in charity events.  These range from the annual Santa toy runs, which many local bike clubs run, to Blood Bikers, who ferry life-saving products out of hours for the NHS.” 

The schools taking part are all accredited, or close to completing accreditation with the Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC). 

This means they meet strict criteria around customer service, how well the needs of learners are met and how seriously safety is taken. They also all know their cake!

MCIAC is backed by the UK’s motorcycle industry, to raise standards and signpost high quality training and was recently endorsed by the government department responsible for driving standards - DVSA.
