Free Cornering Clinics

Mon 28 Jul 2008

As part of the force's drive to encourage safe riding, Northumbria Police are conducting more of their very popular "Cornering Clinics" .

The aim of the clinics will be to explain to riders the importance of good skills, with examples of what can go wrong and how to improve their riding. The Cornering Clinics have been adopted by other forces as part of the national "Bikesafe" scheme.

Bikers are encouraged to attend the training sessions, which are free and last about two hours from 10am to 12 noon. There is no need to pre-book.

After a training session bikers also have the opportunity for a free assessed ride with observers from Northumbria Advanced Motorcycles and Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Drivers and Riders.

The observers are advanced riders who have been trained by the police and can provide assistance to bikers to improve their skills.

Sessions at Morpeth on 30 August and 6th September or on 31st August and 7th September at Washington
