Motorcycling Useful Information and Advice

Motorcycling can also be a practical and cost efficient way of travel. It  can also be great fun and deliver a sense of exhilaration  that cannot be matched by any other form of travel.

Motor cyclists are vulnerable road users.

Motorcycles make up approxamatly 1% of the traffic on Great Britain's roads yet account for over 18% of the number of people killed or seriously injured. In 2012 328 motorcycle users died and 5,000 were seriously injured.

The dangers can be reduced by wearing appropriate clothing, and getting trained. It does not matter if you are a 16 year old getting your first motorised transport, a "born again" biker who after being relieved from some of the financial burdens and responsibilities of family life decides to recapture the joys of your youth or a life long lover of two wheels.

More detailed information about motorcycling can be found at the Bedfordshire and Luton Motorcycling Matters web site (opens in a new window)

Motorcycle Training Matters (opens in a new window)is part of the Bedfordshire and Luton Motorcycling Matters Forum and provides information and links to let you discover everything you need to know about instruction and training related to motorcycling.
