Today I took part in a four hour motorcycle training course with John Forrester from Eden Pro Rider Training. This is something I have intended to do for several years and the incentive offered by CCC (Cumbria County Council) (£100) and a contribution by me of £45 finally made me do it. It was excellent, I came away feeling empowered and a much safer rider than I was yesterday thanks to CCC and John. I will encourage my friends to take part in the future as I believe we could all learn a huge amount from John. I do genuinely believe that making this kind of advanced rider training available at a reasonable cost will improve your motorcycle accident stats. I would ask you to think about ways of making it appeal to the invincible young men who would benefit the most. Thanks again to CCC and John for an excellent experience that might just save my life one day.
With ever increasing leisure activity and popularity of motorcycling nationally, together with those riders who return to biking after a “lay off” period, we offer an opportunity to have your riding assessed by a professional and complete a programme of re-educating to modern day machines, helping to develop riding techniques, as well as highlighting current dangers and trends, which in turn equips the rider with essential “live to ride, ride to live” skills.
