Geared & Go rocks the house
RideSafe BackSafe hailed the recently launched Geared & Go training programme a great success when it made its first appearance in Manchester recently.
42 young motorcycle and scooter riders from across Greater Manchester participated in the interactive seminar to learn about road safety, bike control, protective clothing and routes to licence.
The two half-day programmes were held at the Rock Radio station and also included discussions about crash investigations, the effect of drugs and a demonstration breathalyser test.
RideSafe BackSafe is calling for support from motorcycle dealerships across Manchester and the northwest under its new dealer engagement strategy. The aim is to work more closely with the motorcycle industry on a local level to promote road safety, skills training and protective clothing.
