"BIKE"

Better Information Kickstarts Enjoyment

"Around The Corner" Road Safety Campaign

Working in conjunction with the "Around The Corner" campaign the "BIKE" program is designed to help you get the most enjoyment out of your riding. Its not an "advanced" course, all though we will be happy to help you gain such skills, the "BIKE" programs are designed to help you have more fun at what you already know but may have forgotten or just try to avoid!! 

From the new rider (CBT) to the most experienced, (Advanced Rider and Advanced Observer) a "BIKE" session will help make your time on your machine much more fun and safer.                                    

Its a fact that most car drivers are not bikers, but most bikers are car drivers, unfortunately most bikers ride their bikes like they drive their cars and that tends to be poorly! Why not come on a "bike" course and increase the fun on your bike, you will be amazed at your improvements and discover that your car driving skills will have improved as well!

 As well as being professional biker, Tom has a wealth of local knowledge, which he is very happy to share with you. He has loads of advice, riding tips and information on trips and tours around Scotland, Ireland and Spain.

The "Bike" program runs throughout the year, so If you want to know more, improve your skills or even find out where the best routes and stops are, just get in touch.

Now ... think about this ...

After passing their bike test, most motorcyclists don't develop new skills, they simply become complacent and confident in the lower-end skills they were trained in to pass their test. This makes them a more confident biker but not a safer and better biker. Does this apply to anyone you know?
