Get On comes to Coventry MotoFest June 3rd and 4th
Coventry MotoFest is the next stop for the Get On roadshow this Saturday and Sunday 3rd and 4th June. As usual, it is open to anyone aged 14 or over, who wants to try a motorcycle for free during the two day event.
Get On will be located in the Bull Yard on New Union street near the Inspire cafe bar and Central Hall on both days of the festival.
During 30 minute sessions, the rider will be introduced to gears, brakes and slow speed handling by a professional instructor. They will also be given advice about wearing protective clothing and how to find a good local trainer, should they decide to take their interest further.
Sessions can be booked beforehand by phoning 02476 408040, or via the website www.geton.co.uk or people can book on the day (subject to availability). Sessions start at 9am and the last one starts at 5pm. All protective clothing is provided, but riders should wear long trousers and sturdy shoes and those under 16 need to bring an adult.
Why attend a Get On session?
Karen Cole, Director of Safety and Training for Coventry based Motorcycle Industry Association, which backs Get On events, says this is an ideal introduction to motorcycling:
“Whether for leisure riding, or for commuting, many people like the idea of trying a motorcycle, but don’t know how to get started. First and foremost motorcycling is fun, but it is vital that people get their first taste of riding in a safe and structured environment. That means expectations regarding protective clothing and advice on how to find high quality training, are set out firmly from the beginning, which creates safer riders. Get On does this very well.”
