Be a better biker

Developed by Buckinghamshire Council, with a view to reducing the number of bikers killed or injured on the roads, the workshops are delivered in partnership with Thames Valley Advanced Motorcyclists, Buckinghamshire Advanced Riders & Drivers, Milton Keynes Advanced Motorists and local fire and rescue services.

Whether you’re a relatively new biker, returning to motorcycling, or a rider who has years of experience behind you, anyone is welcome at the Be a Better Biker workshops.

All bikers can expect help and support in taking their skills to the next level – whether you want to improve your riding skills or to get up to date with the latest training.

No matter if you ride a superbike, classic, or tourer, as long as you have a full licence, the Be a Better Biker workshops are right for you!

Here at Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service, we are pleased to host a number of these workshops for motorcyclists and motorcycle clubs in Buckinghamshire, Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.

Each workshop costs £20, lasts about three hours, and is designed to give motorcyclists (full licence holders) an introduction to advanced riding.

Principles of advanced riding will be covered including:

  • Manoeuvring
  • Overtaking
  • Cornering techniques
  • On-road assessment with observers (approximately two hours)
  • A review of the on-road sessions  (discussing lessons learnt)

At the end of the session each participant will receive a copy of the book “How to Be a Better Rider” published by IAM Roadsmart.

The workshops we are hosting are:

  • Winslow Fire Station Saturday 27 May 10am – 1pm
  • Princes Risborough Fire Station Saturday 17 June 10am – 1pm
