Win your dream motorcycle or scooter on a free rider skills training course

Hackney Council’s Road Safety Team is offering a limited number of free vouchers to anyone who lives, works or studies in the borough interested in attending a BikeSafe or ScooterSafe Rider Skills training course.

Designed as an introduction to advance riding skills, the practical course is run by the Metropolitan Police. You will get real advice from real riders and help with everything from scan and plan, junctions, bends and positioning to the right bike, maintenance, equipment and making yourself conspicuous.

The aim of the one-day skills training course is simple; to help you enjoy safer biking even more. Also, by attending the course between 1 September and 30 November 2011, you will automatically be entered into the Met s competition for a chance to win a motorcycle or scooter plus runners up prizes of protective clothing and helmets.

There is a maximum of 1,000 places available on this course in London, which will be booked on a first come first served basis. Applicants must have a valid moped or motorcycle licence and Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) certificate, along with their own taxed and insured, roadworthy, motorised bike.

Councillor Feryal Demirci, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: “Our Road Safety team works hard to promote safety awareness in a variety of ways to road users in Hackney. This course is an ideal opportunity for riders in the borough to develop their skills and learn about the many benefits, as well as the potential hazards, of motorcycling with the chance of winning some fantastic prizes.”
