FirstBike magazine launched

Wednesday 7th May 2014

A new magazine for young PTW riders has been launched this week. 

FirstBike magazine, produced by the publishers of the established FirstCar magazine for young drivers, is aimed at 16-25 year old non-enthusiast scooter, PTW and moped riders.

The 52 pages of A5 size content cover issues such as getting started with the CBT, choosing a bike, safety gear/PPE, maintenance, security and developing road skills.

James Evans, publisher, said: “We’ve been publishing a ‘two-wheel’ section within FirstCar magazine for several years, with lots of support from readers and the motorcycle industry.

“That’s why we decided it was worthy of being its own title, and have created FirstBike magazine.”

FirstBike is available now for road safety teams to purchase at 60p per copy. To order or for more information contact James Evans on 0845 130 8853.

I have just had a good look through it and I love it. It will be a great and welcome addition to our existing programme.

This is an area that has been somewhat lacking in materials in the past, it's a good looking publication with some great content.

This is an excellent step and great to see a specific publication for our PTW riders.

I remember when this first came to notice a few months ago and showed an attractive young woman riding a scoot. Unfortunately as I pointed out apart from her helmet she wore no other protective clothing thus setting a poor example for safety. The response that I got from the publishers was that it was just a tester picture somewhat prior to publication.

I am gratified to see again an attractive young woman but this time wearing an Alpinestar black and white jacket that contains CE protection and still looking as attractive as she should be - and safer. A good first start and hope that the magazine goes well and reaches its target audience.
