Skills to save lives at the roadside

Never move the patient! Never take off their helmet! Just a few of the myths about dealing with a motorbike accident. Let us tell you the truth! You ride the routes most commonly ridden by other motorcyclists. You may ride in groups. We give you the skills to manage a seriously injured motorcyclist until the ambulance arrives.

This is a no-nonsense course that usually runs between 7pm – 10pm.
