Biking champion supports training programme
John Reynolds, former British Superbike champion, is supporting a new motorcycle training programme in Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Shropshire.
‘Take Control’ is hoping to attract motorcyclists who regularly go on ‘group ride-outs’ during the summer, with a range of free assessments and subsidised training courses.
John Reynolds, who now works with Suzuki GB, said: “One of the risks of riding with a group of mates is that you feel competitive urges or put yourself under pressure to ride at a higher speed than you are comfortable with; both are potentially dangerous.
“Take Control instructors can demonstrate advanced techniques that will enable you to ride as a ‘team player’ and without peer pressure.“
After a successful pilot, Take Control has been extended to offer 650 free and subsidised courses in 2009. Five different courses are available to suit the level of experience of the rider, ranging from a free half-day of defensive moped riding techniques through to an in-depth skills enhancement course.
