Try a motorcycle for free at the annual BikeSafe show
You can take a free Get On ride at this year’s national BikeSafe Show and Track Experience at Rockingham Speedway Circuit on Saturday July 16th.
As usual, it is open to anyone aged 15 or over who wants to try a motorcycle or scooter for the first time, or who wants to get back on a bike after a few years and it’s absolutely free!!
Riders will be offered a 30 minute session with a professional instructor, with all safety clothing provided, during which they will be introduced to the gears, brakes, clutch and slow speed handling.
Sessions are between 10am and 4.30pm and can be booked beforehand via the website www.geton.co.uk or by calling 02476 408040, or by turning up on the day.
The national BikeSafe Show is a hugely varied event and one which attracts riders and their families from across the UK. As it is only £1 to get into the show, it also attracts non riders and once they experience the buzz around such an event, they often want to try a motorcycle themselves. 7 year old stunt rider Lottie Trenchard will be showcasing her skills and seeing someone so competent at such a young age always inspires people to want to get on a bike.
About the BikeSafe Show
The BikeSafe show includes opportunities for motorcyclists to see new models and the latest kit, take an assessed ride with the police and try track riding with the California Superbike School, which requires advanced booking. There will also be the chance to take a pillion ride on the circuit, try a skid bike plus Moto Gymkhana. Kawsaki’s Lee Dunham will be offering an hour long off-road experience for just £15 and you can try new road models for free courtesy of Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, Triumph and BMW.
