Here at MoreBikes we’re huge fans of the Police BikeSafe course. Now before you click off, thinking “That’s not for me, it’ll be boring and I don’t want a copper following me around”, check out Carli’s feature here.
Having both been on the course, I can honestly say it’s a LOT of fun, hugely rewarding and potentially a lifesaver.
It’s that last word that turns a lot of people off, conjuring up images of a Police officer standing in a classroom, preaching to everyone to ride more slowly. I’ve said it before, and I’ll be saying it for a long time… IT. IS. NOT. LIKE. THAT.
Each Police force that runs the BikeSafe courses has their own price and structure, but generally it’ll cost about £45 for one or two days. Carli and I joined Cambridgeshire Police for a two-day course – a day in the classroom and a few hours out on the road.
