Motorcyclists on a rural road

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.

 

The partnership encourages riders to continue to develop their skills. Partners offer Bikesafe and Biker Down! Courses, with further information on their dedicated page. To book a session visit the Biksafe website and Biker down! Facebook page. 

 

The partnership is a member of the National Young Rider Forum which focuses on riders aged between 16 and 24 years and ride powered two wheels up to 125cc. For more information about the forum, visit their website.
