The Lincolnshire Police BikeSafe team are all volunteers and passionate about motorcycling and sign-posting riders on to appropriate post-test training. The team is made up from serving police officers, retired-police officers, IAM or RoSPA advanced motorcyclists
We follow the national BikeSafe curriculum, using video, power point and other presentation media to deliver workshops. Workshops are offered over a one-day weekend session, we do an immediate assessment of your riding followed by a theory classroom based session and an observed ride concluding at a popular biker meeting point.
Whilst BikeSafe workshops are delivered in a classroom environment, they are fun, engaging and you are encouraged to offer debate, plus to share your own riding experiences. There is no pressure or expectation and all riders with a full/A2 bike licence are welcome. If the workshop day has to be cancelled by us you will be given as much notice as possible and either an alternative date will be offered to you or a full refund given.
