We are proud in Warwickshire to have so many beautiful motorcycle routes across our county. Riders enjoy the freedom and fun which comes with travelling on a bike but whether you are travelling for leisure or work we want all riders to be safe.
Here are some tips so you can continue to enjoy our roads.
- Always gear up for a ride – protective clothing and helmets help protect you if you are involved in a collision.
- Just like a car you should regularly maintain and check your bike.
- Before riding check your tyres, lights and fluids and look for signs of any oil, fuel or air leaks
- Make sure you can be seen by other road users. Position yourself on the road so you can be seen and make sure you do not ride in drivers’ blind spots.
