Dyfed-Powys Bikesafe is designed to increase your understanding of your own ability and how to find ways to improve, so you can get even more enjoyment from riding your motorcycle. By providing structured feedback, passing on their knowledge, skills and experience, police motorcyclists can help you become a safer and more competent rider.
Each year in Dyfed-Powys an unacceptable number of riders are either killed or seriously injured. Between 2012 and 2016, the number of motorcyclists to lose their lives on our roads numbered 186! Looking at a ‘good year’ (2012), whilst motorcyclists represent just 0.8% of traffic in Wales, they represented 37% of serious and fatal accidents. Compared with car occupant casualties, motorcyclist casualties were: more likely to occur in the spring/summer; less likely to occur in winter; more likely to occur on a Saturday or a Sunday; slightly more likely to occur in daylight; slightly more likely to occur in fine weather and more likely to occur at a junction.
Join us on a BikeSafe workshop and learn how not to be a statistic!
