BikeSafe – Kent and Met police

At BikeSafe skills days, professional police motorcyclists – who are all keen bikers – share the secrets of how to become a neater, smoother, safer and more confident motorcycle rider.

It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting off or if you’re a veteran rider, BikeSafe caters for everyone’s needs. Workshops  include a theory class, followed by an observed ride. Topics covered include: collision causation (right turn violations), cornering/bend assessment, overtaking, filtering, group riding, attitude to risk, hazard management and the system of motorcycle control.

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 advice on essential next steps. After your observed ride, you will receive a written report with recommendations for development.

BikeSafe days are sometimes subsidised (check on their website), but exceptional value even if not. Many KAMG members of all levels attend these days to keep up their training. They run from April through to October and include women-only days – click here for Met Police availability and click here for availability in Kent.
