Sussex BikeSafe is a partnership between Sussex Police and other road safety professionals. The scheme is a national police led initiative which seeks to engage with motorcyclists in a conflict free environment in an attempt to reduce those killed or seriously injured on the roads. The aim is to give riders, using the roads of Sussex, an insight into what can be achieved by exploring advanced riding techniques. So whether if it’s a shiny cruiser or a tricked up sports machine, Sussex Bikesafe is for all.
The friendly, down to earth team, are experienced emergency service personnel who are passionate about riding and look to provide those riders who attend the workshops with an informative and enjoyable day. If you are a rider and are serious about staying safe on the roads or fancy polishing the skills that you already possess, book onto a Sussex BikeSafe course now and have a great day out.
Your Sussex BikeSafe assessment starts at 08.30 and runs through to approximately 16.30, with a maximum of 10 riders. The morning session starts with an intro to the team and we find out a little about you as a rider. We then look at the National BikeSafe package, covering topics such as the system of motorcycle control, collision causation factors, attitude, cornering and overtaking.
The afternoon session will involve the riders going out with an experienced BikeSafe observer on a ratio of 2:1 with a comprehensive briefing including safety factors before the ride. By passing on their knowledge, skills and experience, the team can help you become a safer more competent rider. At the end of the observed ride there will be a thorough debrief with a written ride summary report. We look forward to welcoming you to Sussex BikeSafe
