Run by the emergency services, ‘Biker Down’ courses are available nationally and they are free to participants.
Even though our members are all experienced road users, we learned many vital first responses to road accident scenes. Not least of all, and an obvious imperative for us, how to deal with a motorcycle helmet under different circumstances.
We also learned about overall incident site management and the latest thinking on being as visible as possible as riders.
Every one of our members thought the 3 hour course, held at the local fire station, was very worthwhile and the Q&A engagement level with the professionals was very high.
