 a slow riding skills training session from a qualified instructor
. A
 Senior Observer at the Herts and Beds Advanced Motorcyclists organisation

Chief Inspector Hann of the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire Road Policing Unit, said: “Winter presents a number of new challenges to motorcyclists, particularly when the weather is poor and the temperature drops. This course will really help to give riders confidence and teach them skills that will help to ensure they are safe.

“We want to help local people and motorcyclists to be ready in advance for the winter months. The course is perfect for anyone who wants to continue using their bike over the next few months, and I’d really recommend that people go along no matter how much experience they have. Spaces are limited, so please book early.

Two sessions are available, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. If you are interested in taking part, please pre-register by visiting http://www.motorcyclingmatters.org/ridefreeskills and filling out the registration form.
