Safe Rider is a joint initiative between Suffolk and Norfolk
Constabularies which aims to reduce motorcycle casualties.
The Suffolk Safe Rider campaign sets out to achieve this by
running ‘Safe Rider’ motorcycle workshops to help improve riders’
awareness and ability while on the road.
Our workshops are run over two days and are aimed at all fully
qualified riders who want to improve their skills to become better
and safer riders.
The underlying message of our workshops is that education is the
key, not enforcement.
In a conflict free environment, riders will be introduced to the
police roadcraft system - the corner stone of police riding. The
workshop provides individuals with professional advice and confirms
their strengths and identifies their weaknesses as a rider.
The two-day workshop is aimed at riders living in Suffolk and is
run with the support of:
Copdock Classic Motorcycle
The course costs £50 per person and is held at Police
Headquarters, Martlesham Heath, Ipswich.
It starts on a Friday at 7pm with classroom sessions on the
system of road craft, with particular attention given to
positioning and cornering.
The next morning, you’ll go on an escorted ride out session with
a class 1 police motorcyclist. A maximum 3:1 ratio ensures an
accurate and personalised assessment of your riding performance,
which will be explained to you at the end of the session.
This is followed by a light lunch which is included in the cost,
and an informative classroom session on first aid will bring the
workshop to an end.
