Local bikers are being offered the chance to develop their riding skills via the BikeSafe sessions held at Melton.

The force runs regular courses for full licence holders at its Melton base with the next set of sessions starting in April.

The courses will run on:

Sunday, April 18

Saturday, May 15

Saturday, June 19

Sunday, July 4

Sunday, August 15

Sunday, September 5

The courses are designed to help bikers develop their skills in a fun and informative way.

They are run by fellow motorbike enthusiasts who happen to be serving or former bike cops. They want to help bikers stay safe on the roads through skills improvement.

A police spokesman said: “We know how passionate motorcyclists are about their bikes.

“Humberside #BikeSafe aims to provide a fun, relaxed, interesting and informative day to help you explore ways to develop your riding skills.

“It’s run by passionate bikers who just happen to be serving or retired bike cops and who are dedicated to improving biking for everyone. BikeSafe is a nationally run scheme for bikers run by the police.

“The idea is to help bikers explore their current ability level and discover ways to improve their skills, be safer and get more out of biking. Workshops are run in a fun, relaxed and interesting style.

“There is no pressure or expectations and all riders with a full/restricted power bike licence are greeted with a warm welcome.

“Whether you are new to biking or have been riding for years, BikeSafe can help you find ways of getting more from your riding.

“We work with the IAM/ROSPA/Enhanced Rider Scheme and we hope to inspire all riders to take up training to be better bikers.”
