Bike Safe is a nationwide initiative run by many Police Forces around the United Kingdom. The aim is to reduce the number of motorcycle accident casualties by promoting safer riding through lectures and assessment ride outs taken by police advance motorcyclists.
Whilst we continue to see a reduction in motorcycle causalities in Cumbria, the change is only a slight improvement. Motorcycles continue to be one of the most vulnerable road users. Let’s try for some significant improvement this year.
Cumbria County Council have kindly provided funding for Bike Safe in Cumbria so the course is free, but subject to a booking fee. Each lecture will be based on a nationally produced DVD, which standardises the learning around the country and it is designed to promote thinking around biking scenarios and discussion within the group.
