The National BikeSafe Show and Track Experience will return on Saturday 12th April this year at the Castle Combe race circuit.
In 2013, the event welcomed over 400 riders who were given a one-hour assessed ride with a police motorcyclist and a 15-minute group track ride with their own bikes around the Castle Combe circuit.
More than 7,000 people turned up to last year's event and were treated to stunt bike shows, trade stands, manufacturers and plenty of other attractions to suit all ages. Visitors had the opportunity to meet professionals from the Police Firearms, Support Group and Under Water Search units.
The Castle Combe race circuit is located near Chippenham in Wiltshire and is easy to access from the M4 motorway.
The National BikeSafe Show and Track Experience is organised in two stages. BikeSafe is a one-hour ride with a police rider on a two-to-one basis. The Show, on the other hand, features a great selection of motorcycle displays, clubs and trade stands in the paddock, and gives bike enthusiasts the opportunity to test some bike models for themselves.
To participate in the ride and track event, bikers are required to wear the appropriate clothing and to hold a full motorbike licence. In addition, they are required to have a motorcycle capable of maintaining the national speed restrictions.
Entry and parking is free at the event, and it costs £30 to participate in the observed ride and track experience. Last year, tickets were sold out two months before the event, so be sure to get your tickets soon. Bookings can be made via the BikeSafe website.
