Motorcyclists living in Powys are being urged to have their skills assessed so that they can ride safer in the county.
Powys County Council’s Road Safety Unit is inviting motorcyclists living in the county to take part in a free ‘Ride On’ course. Two courses have been arranged and will be taking place in Llandrindod Wells on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 22 July and further courses will be scheduled later in the year in the north and south of the county.
The course gives bikers an introduction to advanced motorcycling and is geared up towards brushing up skills and improving their riding experience and enjoyment. The course is completely free to Powys residents thanks to funding from the Welsh Government.
Cllr Barry Thomas, Cabinet Member for Road Safety, said: “Motorcyclists are one of our most vulnerable road users in Powys and we want to promote safer riding and reduce the number of motorcyclists killed or seriously injured on our roads.
“This assessment, along with other initiatives, will help us achieve this. We will be scheduling more courses later this year, so if you are interested in taking part in one, please register your interest with the Road Safety Unit.”
To book your place one of the courses or to register your interest in future courses then telephone the Road Safety Unit on 01597 826979 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
