Ride Safe in Stranraer

Another “Bikesafe” event has been organised to promote safe riding. The latest one will be at Stranraer Police Station on Sunday 26 May 2013, at 11 am.

This free event is specifically aimed at motorcyclists to pass on valuable advice when they are out riding on the road. It features an informal presentation on the techniques and skills taught to police motorcycle riders which is openly shared with the biking community.

Bikesafe has been run in previous years and were very well received by those participating. They are informal events where riders all share their own experiences and knowledge and are for new and experienced riders alike.

The Bikesafe (Scotland) scheme will be run local retired Police biker Jim Cowie and Advanced Biker John Parry.

Since Bikesafe started over 12 years ago there has been a very good turnout within Dumfries and Galloway with a large number of riders attending.

Constable John Parry said this will be a relaxed day along with a serious message.

“It has to be said that feedback from previous Bikesafe presentations from beginners to riders with over 50 years biking experience has been equally good,” Constable Parry said.

“The broad range of bike ownership from race bred to custom machines has also been pleasing and just shows that our advice applies to all riding styles.”

As places on the days are limited, riders are advised to contact John Parry on 101 or email john.parry@scotland.pnn.police.uk to book a space. This presentations is free and light refreshments will be supplied.
