Young motorcyclists are one of the most vulnerable road users, with riders aged 16 to 25 accounting for over half of Staffordshire’s motorcycle casualties every year. Those taking their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) on a moped or a 125cc motorcycle are even more vulnerable, often with little experience and generally poor knowledge of the highway code or rules of the road. Although meeting the CBT standard, most young riders are ill prepared for what lies ahead of them and unfortunately are at high risk of becoming a road traffic casualty.
To support young riders we have lots of information and tips on how to ride more safely. If you would like to join one of our ride-outs you would learn from others and become a more confoident safer rider.
