Appeal to bikers to stay safe
MOTORCYCLISTS are being urged to sign up to a course to keep them safe on the road.
The Bikesafe course is part of a national initiative which is run by officers locally and teaches how to assess risks, cornering and overtaking.
As the weather improves many riders will begin to take to the roads, to coincide with this there will be courses running at Thorpe Wood, Sawston and St Neots police stations.
The course runs over three consecutive Tuesday evenings from 7pm until 9pm.
The Bikesafe team will also be at the BMF show in Peterborough on May 19 and 20.

Course leader PC Simon Burgin, said: “Motorcyclists make up only two per cent of road users in the county but they make up 27 per cent of those killed or seriously injured.
“Being a good rider is no accident, it takes skill, knowledge and concentration to be one of the best.
