Rugby Motorcyclists Encouraged To 'Take Control'

Author: Matthew Deaves Published: 21st January 2012 11:12

Motorcyclists encouraged to 'Take Control' with a one day course.

Motorcyclists are encouraged to take up a riding skills course at a special rate to prepare for the prospect of better weather and a new riding season.

The one day ‘Take Control' skills enhancement experience, supported by Warwickshire County Council, is being offered to riders at a £10 discount if they sign up to complete the course before 31 March 2012.

Take Control has received rave reviews from its clients and the specialist motorcycling press for the way it helps riders develop their skills and confidence under the tutorage of professional and friendly instructors.

The usual cost fee is £30, but to encourage riders to take up the programme at the beginning of the season, a limited number of places have been made available at the reduced price of just £20 if taken before the end of March.

With a focus on practical on-road training that is tailored to the individual needs of riders and a maximum ratio of two students to one instructor, riders can expect to receive plenty of helpful and friendly advice and the opportunity to practice during their time with Take Control.

County Councillor Richard Hobbs, Portfolio Holder for Community Protection said: "Many motorcyclists hibernate their bikes during the winter to avoid the cold and the hazards presented by damp and greasy road surfaces. The new year is the time when riders make plans for the season ahead and look forward to being enticed back out onto the road by longer days and better weather.

"A day out with a Take Control instructor will help riders get back into their stride and is the ideal springboard to a great riding season. The programme will help riders brush up on their skills, learn new techniques and enjoy their experience even more. "

Take Control starts with a brief and a hot drink at a favourite café close to home before spending a day on the bike with plenty more café stops for refuelling, informal de-briefs and general biking chat. The instructors work hard to ensure the courses are enjoyable as well as informative and we are hoping motorcyclists will take up this offer over the next few months as they start looking forward to better weather and more opportunities to ride."

The Take Control training programme is available to anyone who rides in Warwickshire and is subsidised by Warwickshire County Council.
