Coffee, cakes and motorcycles - a natural combination


Some of the UK’s best motorcycle and scooter training schools will be taking part in the World’s Biggest MacMillan Coffee Morning on Friday 29th September.  They are inviting regular clients and those just curious about motorcycling to call in and enjoy coffee and cake, while supporting the Macmillan cause.


Karen Cole, Director of Safety and Training for the UK’s Motorcycle Industry Association, which runs MCIAC says:
“This is the first year MCIAC accredited training schools have taken part in this great cause and provides an alternative venue for those who like to support the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.   Coffee, cakes and motorcycles mix very well, as anyone who visits the Cotswolds will know, where tea rooms are always packed with riders at the weekends!

“Motorcyclists have a long standing reputation for getting involved in charity events.  These range from the annual Santa toy runs, which many local bike clubs run, to Blood Bikers, who ferry life-saving products out of hours for the NHS.”

The schools taking part are all accredited, or close to completing accreditation with the Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC). 

This means they meet strict criteria around customer service, how well the needs of learners are met and how seriously safety is taken. 

MCIAC is backed by the UK’s motorcycle industry, to raise standards and signpost high quality training and was recently endorsed by the government department responsible for driving standards - DVSA.

Notes for Editors
  • Accreditation is awarded by the Motorcycle Industry Accreditation Centre (MCIAC), which is run by the Motorcycle Industry Association.  Businesses which are accredited or working towards accreditation far exceed the guidelines set out by the government for motorcycle training.  Once they have gained accreditation, they are inspected annually and every single customer who trains with an MCIAC accredited school is offered the chance to complete a feedback survey after their training, to ensure that the school continues to meet the high standards set out by MCIAC.
