Metropolitan Police Bikesafe

Real advice from real riders. Could you get more from your bike? At our rider skills days, professional police motorcyclists – who are all keen bikers – share the secrets of how to become a neater, smoother, safer and more confident rider. The days are run by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service and Transport for London (TfL) subsidises BikeSafe-London as part of the work it does to reduce collisions involving motorcycles.

Don’t live in London? BikeSafe is a national initiative backed by the Association of Chief Police Officers and you can find BikeSafe workshops in many forces around the Country.

A Metropolitan Police BikeSafe workshop will cover:

  • hazard perception
  • vanishing points
  • gear selection
  • making yourself visible

The aim of the day is simple: to help you enjoy safer biking even more. You’ll get advice that’ll make good sense to you at your stage and ability and help on where to get further training.
