BikeSafe-London celebrates anniversary with bygone price

Tuesday 7th May 2013

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, BikeSafe-London is offering its Rider Skills Day at the original 2003 price - a saving of £20.

Since April 2003, more than 26,000 motorcyclists have attended a BikeSafe-London Rider Skills Day. The scheme is jointly run and funded by Transport for London (TfL) and the Metropolitan Police Service.

Rider Skills Days are delivered by highly qualified traffic police officers and combine observed rides with interactive presentations, discussions and advice on rider safety.

The reduced price of £25 is valid between 29 April and 6 September. Riders will also have the opportunity to enter a competition to win one of two BMW Off-Road Skills Level One GS courses.

Ben Plowden, director of surface planning at TfL, said: “BikeSafe-London has helped create a huge number of safer motorcyclists in London over the past 10 years and hopefully the current offer to attend for the price of a decade ago will help encourage a whole new generation of safer motorcyclists.

“We continue to look at how we can improve road safety for all road users and our Motorcycle Safety Action Plan, which will be published later this year, will set out how we will further improve the safety of riders in the capital.”
