Motorcycle Safety

Biker Down

Free First Aid & Accident scene management, together with the ‘science of being seen’ workshops for bikers & pillions.

Aimed at motorcyclists and pillions of all ages and experience, this free scheme offers the chance to learn essential first-aid training and advice on what to do should they find themselves first on the scene of a crash where someone is injured.

The scheme is delivered, free of charge, to participants at SkillZONE Gloucester in small informal groups. The course is made up of three modules, including accident scene management, motorcycle specific first-aid training i.e. CPR, managing major bleeds and helmet removal, and classroom-based tuition on the science of being seen.

These courses are run by Gloucestershire Police and their BikeSafe team and are dedicated to increasing road safety, whilst reducing road deaths involving motorcyclists.

These motorcycle safety days aim to reduce the number of motorcycle rider casualties by promoting safer riding and sign-posting all riders to recognise the value of ongoing (advanced) motorcycle training. Offering riders the opportunity to have their riding observed by an advanced motorcyclist. This identifies areas of risk and helps riders to recognise how improvement will make them a more skilled and safer motorcyclist.
