Road safety for motorcyclists

I'm Andy Adlington – motorcycle officer for the road safety partnership.

My job is to help bikers to stay safe while enjoying the freedom of the road. I’m here to support you whether you’re a leisure biker who loves our country roads or a commuter trying to get to work on time.

That's why we:

  • offer a range of great training subsidies to bikers wishing to upgrade their skills. We’ve got something for everyone from complete beginners to those with many years’ experience including:

    • CBT Plus
    • advanced rider training
    • Enhanced Rider Scheme (ERS)

  • publish free The Bikers Guide to Derbyshire
  • share safety tips at motorcycle events between April and September
  • visit schools and colleges to talk to student riders about staying in control on today's busy roads.

Happy biking!

Andy
