Confidence boosted ten-fold
Just wanted to leave some feedback on my recent BikeSafe workshop with Warwickshire OPU. Thank you so much guys! The day was brilliant and I have taken a lot of hints and tips away with me. The classroom time and content was just right. Lots of videos and discussion rather than death by PowerPoint. Being a person who learns visually, this was very useful.
The Warwickshire BikeSafe instructors were very informative, without being patronising or overbearing. I got the impression they only wanted to help us and impart what they have learnt from being experienced police riders.
I went out with Rich and found him to be a very calming person. The advice was given in a relaxed and constructive format. He never once made me feel belittled, if anything, he boosted my confidence tenfold! He has a fantastic way of explaining things and I would thoroughly recommend Warwickshire BikeSafe and Rich to anyone.
Will implement into my regular riding
The observed ride routes were tailored to what we wanted to improve/work on for ourselves and having two riders to one instructor was just right as you got a good hour and half riding up front and the same amount of time behind as well.
The mix of road types and route was brilliant with some phenomenal riding roads and scenery. It just felt like a really relaxed ride out with a friend and that’s down to how welcoming and lovely all the instructors are. It was a wonderful day which I have taken a lot from and will implement into my regular riding.
