Webinar to support young riders and give them a voice


The National Young Rider Forum (NYRF) is partnering with the Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership to host a free webinar for young riders.

Registration is now open for the Young Rider Webinar, which takes place on 27 June (6:30-8pm), on MS Teams.

The webinar is aimed at those aged between 16-24 years. It gives them a voice to ask any questions of NYRF members who cover a large area of expertise in the world of motorcycling.

Speakers include Jody Whitfield from the DVSA, who will tell riders all about gaining their driving licences and taking their CBT test.

Other topics covered will include motorcycle PPE and maintenance, common crashes young riders are involved in (and how to avoid them) and ways of improving your skills.

Heidi Duffy MBE, facilitator of the NYRF, said: “The challenges young riders face – both on and off the road – are well documented.

“Things such as insurance and choosing the right bike can be tricky, as can choosing the right PPE, especially on a budget.

“We hope this webinar can support our army of young riders and set them up for a lifetime of happiness on two wheels, if that’s what they desire.

“Register now and come join the fun!”

The webinar forms part of the inaugural NYRF Young Rider Day.

The event seeks to raise awareness of the many young motorcyclists who take to the road on small powered motorcycles and share their journey with larger and more powerful traffic.
