About Humberside BikeSafe

Hi, thanks for checking out the Humberside BikeSafe webpage!

Humberside BikeSafe aims to provide a fun, relaxed, interesting and informative day to help you explore ways to develop your riding skills. It’s run by passionate bikers who just happen to be serving or retired Bike Cops and who are dedicated to improving biking for everyone.



At the helm is Stu Farquharson, a serving bike cop and a sergeant in the Specialist Operations Unit, who owns a BMW S1000XR and enjoys days out, touring on the continent with friends, MotoGP, and the occasional bike rally.

Howie Fordham is our mainstay workshop presenter and has worked on BikeSafe since the year dot! He is an ex-Bike Cop and Police Motorcycle Instructor and is a current IAM Examiner. Howie rides a BMW R1200RT and goes for marathon tours with his wife in Europe.






BikeSafe is a nationally run scheme for bikers run by the Police. The idea is to help bikers explore their current ability level and discover ways to improve their skills, be safer and get more out of biking.

Workshops are run in a fun, relaxed and interesting style. There is no pressure or expectations and all riders with a full/restricted power bike licence are greeted with a warm welcome. Whether you are new to biking or have been riding for years, BikeSafe can help you find ways of getting more from your riding. We work with IAM/ROSPA/Enhanced Rider Scheme and we hope to inspire all riders to take up training to be better bikers.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
