‘Be a better biker’ assessment days return for 2018

| April 4, 2018

Franco Amarro, a biker who regained his confidence after a crash by joining TVAM.

The popular ‘Be a better biker’ assessment days are returning in Buckinghamshire for 2018.

Bookings are now being taken for the most extensive Be a Better Biker (BaBB) season in Buckinghamshire so far, with the full day sessions only costing £20 per rider.

Running every month between April and September, the assessment days are hosted by Thames Vale Advanced Motorcyclists (TVAM) and are open to all bikers with a full motorcycle licence. BaBB aims to progress good bikers into great bikers, offering a workshop on the principles of advanced riding followed by an on-road assessment.

The workshops, which run from 10.00am to 4.00pm and cost £20 per rider, will all take place at Marlow Fire Station on :

  • Saturday 28th April 2018.
  • Sunday 13th May 2018.
  • Saturday 23rd June 2018.
  • Sunday 22nd July 2018.
  • Saturday 11th August 2018.
  • Saturday 8th September 2018.

To book your place please visit www.buckscc.gov.uk/beabetterbiker.

In the last three years (2015 to 2017), 154 riders and pillion passengers have been killed or seriously injured on Buckinghamshire’s roads. The course, which is supported by the County Council and Travel Safe Bucks, aims to reduce the number of bikers killed or injured on the roads.

Mark Shaw, Buckinghamshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Transportation, said: ‘With its winding roads and stunning countryside, Buckinghamshire is understandably popular with bikers – particularly when the weather turns nicer and the bikes come out of the garage for the first time in months.

We want everyone to be safe on the roads and the County Council is happy to be supporting TVAM in promoting these workshops.

Whether you ride a sports, classic, trials or tourer – if you have a full licence and live or ride in Buckinghamshire you are welcome at BaBB.
