BikeSafe courses could save your life
5:00pm Friday 22nd March 2013 in News
COURSES across the county promoting biker safety have been unveiled.
The BikeSafe courses are available for those riding machines of at least 250cc and they run between April and October.
They run over weekends, with the first part focusing on theory and the second an assessed ride.
It is subsidised by councils and the cost is £20.
PC Chris Smith, BikeSafe Co-ordinator, said: “We ride real bikes on real roads in real situations and plan routes to take in all the various road conditions that you might find in Dorset.
“Even the most experienced bikers could learn something on the BikeSafe course that may one day save their life.
“This course provides motorcyclists with a great opportunity to gain advice and tips on areas including cornering, overtaking, positioning and hazard perception.
“The Dorset Police riders that run this course are genuinely passionate about motorcycling and we hope everyone that takes part in the course enjoys it.
“It’s the best investment you can make as a biker.”
