Motorcycles

Bikers love the Derbyshire countryside because it offers great rides, but too many of them are running into trouble. We want bikers to enjoy our countryside year after year. 


To die for sign

BikeSafe is a national police-run motorcycle initiative, aimed at working with motorcycle riders in a relaxed environment, to raise awareness of the importance and value of progressing on to accredited post-test training.

Motorcyclists who aspire to improving their skills and safety on two wheels can attend a one-day BikeSafe workshop.

Derbyshire BikeSafe, delivered by Derbyshire police motorcyclists, helps fully licenced riders stay safe on the roads by helping them to further develop their skills. Topics covered include advanced positioning skills, bike control, hazard awareness, observation, cornering, braking, and overtaking.

Founded and based in the East Midlands, the Shiny Side Up Partnershipis made up of a group of expert professionals from road safety, collision investigation and police traffic management teams. Bikers in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire are the focus of their campaign to reduce the number of fatal and serious casualties suffered by bikers, whether riding for leisure or on commuting journeys.

The National Young Rider Forum is a group of road safety professionals, interested specifically in young motorcyclists. This vulnerable group are aged between 16 and 24 years and are riding powered 2-wheelers of up to 125cc. The Forum website has information on a broad range of subjects from the CBT test, other training, maintenance, security, and insurance. There's also the opportunity for riders to directly ask questions to NYRF experts.
