BikeSafe stalwart gets major recognition from colleagues across the UK


Sergeant Paul Mostyn, the officer responsible for starting BikeSafe London, has received a commendation for his ‘outstanding contribution to motorcycle safety’. 

For the past 11 years, Paul has worked hard to create and sustain the largest BikeSafe scheme in the UK; building a highly effective partnership with Transport for London, while also making a significant contribution to the development of BikeSafe nationally. David Griffin, Deputy Chief Constable of Humberside Police, who is the lead for motorcycle safety for the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) says Sergeant Mostyn should be “justifiably proud of the contribution he has made as a police officer to saving lives and reducing injuries in London and elsewhere.” Paul has helped influence over 27,000 motorcyclists during this phase of his career, which is the number which has taken a BikeSafe London workshop. “In doing so, (Sergeant Mostyn) has consistently displayed qualities of leadership, tenacity, good humour and enduring patience,” continued David Griffin. The commendation was given on behalf of BikeSafe colleagues throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
