Default BikeSafe

Signed up to do the BikeSafe with Merseyside police in May, 1 day with police and riding assessment then second day with IAM/ rospa for 30 notes seems a good deal. Anyone else done it!

I did Bikesafe down in Aberystwyth a couple of years back and really enjoyed the day.

Done it twice with Essex Police. Great fun, learned a lot, ate a huge amount of pie and chips at the cafe they took us to for lunch, clearly the police are given extra big portions there.

Did mine in South London. Great day out riding - really enjoyed it and so did the copper who tried to keep up with me.

I did my second one after I'd been off the bike a while with my broken elbow. My confidence had been sapped. I warned the policeman I was with that I might be a bit slow and wobbly. After I'd managed to lose him on the Burnham bends 20 minutes in he said he was glad to see I'd got my confidence back!

Any advanced training is good because they are training you to ride, not just to pass a test. I did a one to one day with the guy who trains the Essex Police riders. Riding behind him as he gave me a running commentary of what he was looking for, doing with the bike, road position, anticipating etc was a fantastic, one of the best 100 I've spent.
