Calling all local motorcyclists: workshops are planned to assist you in improving your riding skills

'Be a Better Biker' workshops allow riders to take their skills to a level that helps improve safety and enjoyment.

About the workshops

They are designed to give motorcyclists an introduction to advanced riding. The day covers the principles of advanced riding including:

  • Manoeuvring
  • Overtaking
  • Cornering techniques
  • On-road assessment with observers, approximately 2 hours
  • A review of the on-road sessions, discussing lessons learnt

At the end of the session each candidate will receive a copy of the book "How to Be a Better Rider" published by IAM Roadsmart.

Upcoming dates:

Saturday 19th March — Winslow Public Hall
Saturday 23rd April — Bradmoor Farm, Haddenham
