New guide for motorcyclists

Have your say

A NEW guide to Derbyshire has been produced to keep motorcyclists safe when they ride in the county.

The Bikers’ Guide to Derbyshire has been produced by the Derby and Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership and is available from most bike retailers.

It includes information on how to apply for a new two-day training course, called Derbyshire BikeSafe, for £50, where riders can develop their skills further.

Partnership chairman Mike Ashworth said: “Bikers love the Derbyshire countryside because it offers great rides but too many of them are running into trouble.

“We want bikers to enjoy our countryside year after year rather than leaving in an ambulance or a hearse.”
