Workshops are sponsored by the North Wales Partnerships and finance provided through ‘Taith’. As such the Workshops and other activity that BikeSafe provides is free although subject to the workshop booking agency fee which is presently £10 pp.
The workshops are designed to offer education consistent with all other BikeSafe areas in the UK. Our aim is to provide up to date information on what are the main ingredients that cause an accident. With the aid of animated crash scenarios depicted on a DVD we will discuss the solutions. There is then an enjoyable practical road element over approximately 60 miles taking you round the roads of North Wales and Snowdonia National Park. BikeSafe does not offer radio communication but regular de briefing of your ride which incorporates a demonstration and assessment. The rides are risk assessed and on no more that a one to three ratio but almost always less. This ensures that you are riding within your ability and speed which is ultimately no more than the legal and safe limits. The whole experience offers something for all skill levels that have passed their motorcycle test whenever it was! This is your chance to take advantage of riding with like minded professionals in a safe learning environment. You are bound to enjoy the experience and most likely to learn more and where else you can go to achieve your goal having been given sufficient understanding of what is required.
We do accept pillions and there is no cost if they wish to take part.
In addition North Wales Police will provide a free days training of first aid for bikers licensed by Medic Skills from FBoS ( First Bike on Scene – North West NHS) Upon completion you will be issued a Certificate of Approval from the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and a safety pack. (See FBoS section)
If you ride a small bike may be as a commuter or learner you may be interested to take advantage of Scooter Safe (See Scooter Safe section)
We are happy to consider delivery of talks and presentations.
North Wales is part of the Wales BikeSafe region and enjoys working alongside the other Wales Coordinators to a common end.
