Dundee based motorcycle training school helps people work out if their commute would be better on a motorcycle or scooter

June 21, 2017

Dundee based motorcycle training school is joining a national campaign to highlight the benefits of riding to work

GMTS (Tayside) Ltd, which is in Old Kings Cross Road, is holding day of events on Friday 23rd June, to coincide with national Ride to Work Week.

This is to help local people to decide whether they would be better off commuting by motorcycle or scooter.  Ride to Work Week (19th to 25th June) highlights the advantages of riding to and from work, which include saving time, money, easier parking and improving road skills, plus the best reason of all – it’s just more fun!

Free coffee and bacon rolls will be served between 7.30am – 10am. Coffee and cake is on the menu between 3pm and 5pm.  Anyone dropping in during the day will receive money off vouchers for their training and can have a free trial, subject to availability.

The school’s moto is ‘The route to freedom’ and owner Margaret Mitchell explained why riding to work was a good option:

“If you’ve ever sat in stationary traffic and felt envious watching a motorcyclist slowly filter through to the front, it might be time to switch to a motorcycle or scooter yourself.

“There are also lots of places of work which are difficult to get to via public transport, made even more difficult if you are on shifts, or else parking is a problem.  My staff all ride to work each day and never have a problem planning the timing of their journey.  How many car drivers can say that?”

“The most important part of learning to ride is choosing a high quality trainer and GMTS (Tayside) Ltd is the only MCIAC ‘accredited’ motorcycle training businesses in Scotland, which means it offers consistently high quality training.”
