About South Yorkshire BikeSafe




South Yorkshire

Bikesafe workshops are designed to give you an insight into the benefits of further rider training by providing a classroom based presentation of some of the causation factors resulting in motorcycle collisions as well as issues around the vulnerability of motorcyclists and raising awareness of potential hazards. A practical observed ride provides feedback on your motorcycling strengths and weaknesses in a number of criteria. The South Yorkshire team then signpost you to other agencies and organisations within South Yorkshire that are able to provide further guidance or training.
The aims of South Yorkshire’s Bikesafe team is to encourage motorcycling enthusiasts to seek out all opportunities to improve their riding skills and personal safety thus reducing the number of casualties on our roads.
Last we saw a significant reduction in motorcycle fatalities, from 9 fatalities in 2015 to 3 in 2016.
We are committed to working with our partners to reduce injuries and promote Road Safety, this is an ongoing project with Bikesafe playing a major part in rider education.
All workshops are held from 9.00am to 4.00pm at the South Yorkshire Operations complex, Europa Link, Sheffield S9 1XX.
