I try to do one of these every few years to help refresh things so off on the theory part tomorrow then out in 2 weeks for a couple of hours with a friendly copper.

Have my son with me this year, really looking forward to it.

If you've never tried it, they are excellent courses.

Just Google "Bikesafe"

I’d agree with the above endorsement  :169:

I did it some years back now, didn’t think I’d get a huge amount out of it but was pleasantly surprised.

It’s a great little refresher on some of the fundamentals of road riding with a groups of enthusiastic people.

Indeed and there's always new stuff to learn.

They combined it with a Herts FireBike "Biker Down" afternoon with the latest teachings on First on Scene and how to manage a crash scene plus immediate aid including helmet removal.

Very useful and there are great pointers into other areas - advanced riding, kit etc etc.
