Former police motorcyclist honoured
A former police officer has been recognised for his work passing on life-saving skills to motorcyclists.
Bob Brown helped set up the BikeWise scheme in 1995 to break down barriers between police and bike enthusiasts – and now the 53-year-old has been honoured with Motorcycle News' Hero of the Year Award.
The former sergeant, who retired from Durham Constabulary two years ago, said being given the award was ‘phenomenal’, adding that he was ‘absolutely honoured, privileged and gobsmacked’.
Bob and fellow ex-police officer Mick Alder continue to support the scheme. Together they run BikeWise Training, which teaches advanced skills to riders and is supported by police and Durham County Council.
