Get On, which is the motorcycle industry’s free ‘try out’ programme, will be offering 45-minute taster lessons in the grounds of the British Motor Museum on Saturday 26th, Sunday 27th and Monday 28th August. These will be available between 9am and 5.30pm each day.
Karen Cole, Director of Safety and Training for the Motorcycle Industry Association, which backs Get On events, says this is an ideal introduction to motorcycling:
“First and foremost motorcycling is fun, but it is vital that people get their first taste of riding in a safe and structured environment, where expectations about wearing protective clothing are set and people understand the value of finding high quality training.
“Government vehicle licensing figures show that more and more people are riding motorcycles and scooters each year and we want them to wear the right gear and take training with the best schools in the UK. So whether you are looking for a new hobby in retirement, or you are 16 years old and planning to get your first moped, Get On will get you started in the right way.”
