Lancashire BikeSafe

BikeSafe is a nationwide scheme which aims to reduce casualties among bikers by passing on tips and knowledge, to give an insight to safer, smoother riding and a heightened awareness of possible hazards. The scheme invites motorcyclists to participate in an assessment of their present skills, and advice to help make their riding safer and more enjoyable.

The aim of Lancashire BikeSafe is to reduce the number of motorcycle accident casualties by promoting safer riding through lectures and an observed ride taken by police motorcyclists and IAM observers. Then to signpost riders to accredited post test training. Motorcyclists continue to be one of the most vulnerable road users. Let’s try for some significant improvement this year, in Lancashire and throughout the UK.

Workshop content

Lancashire Bikesafe is a full day programme which will start at 09:00 at the designated venue. Each date will be based on a nationally produced DVD, which standardises the learning around the country. It is designed to promote thinking around biking scenarios and discussion within the group.

The day will be split into

  • Classroom inputs and discussions
  • Observed ride out with a mix of observers from the Police, IAM and RoSPA
  • First aid input

The morning will be classroom based in the venue. The group will be split in the afternoon so that half the group can do the observed ride and the others have the first aid input and then the groups will be swapped round. There will be a break for lunch, but this is not provided and you will need to either bring a packed lunch or purchase refreshments from local shops.
