Bikers of all ages are being invited to participate in the Take Control course that will run across Worcestershire, Shropshire, Herefordshire, Telford and Wrekin this spring. All those who are keen to enhance their motorcycling skills, gain confidence and become a better motorcyclist are welcome to join the training initiative, local newspaper the Kidderminster Shuttle reports.


The campaign allows all riders to join the course, whether they ride a scooter, a motorcycle or a moped. Courses can be completed over a full day or half day depending on individual needs, so it is suitable for both experienced and new riders. The project is partly funded by the Safer Roads Partnership, with support from NHS Worcestershire Public Health and the TTC Group. The full-day course costs £50, while the half-day course is available for £25.


This is a great opportunity for riders to get ready for the new season this year, commented Anna Higgins, communications manager at the Safer Roads Partnership. Bikers check their bike when taking it out after the long winter, so why not refresh your riding skills as well, Higgins added.


New or inexperienced riders are most welcome, and the organisers believe that they will benefit the most from the course as it will be supervised by experienced instructors. This is an invaluable opportunity for bikers, according to Higgins.


A course like this usually costs much more, but this one is available at a lower price because it is subsidised by the Safer Roads Partnership, NHS Worcestershire Public Health and TTC Group.
