BLOOD Bikers are set to come roaring into north Worcestershire to showcase the vital work they do.
Since 1962, Blood Bike volunteers have been giving their time to provide a free of charge service delivering blood products, drugs, specimens and even donor organs to hospitals in the evenings and at weekends.
On May 28 at Redditch Fire Station members of the public can meet some of the riders when a Severn Freewheelers Blood Bike will be helping out Redditch Advanced Motorcyclists Group (RAMG) at their annual Skills Day.
The aim of the day is to recruit riders young and old, male and female to join RAMG and to train to take their advanced bike test. This is a minimum requirement for most Blood Bike groups in the UK and Redditch Advanced Motorcyclists is proud to have trained over a dozen Blood Bike riders to this high standard.
Many bikers have only taken their DSA bike test and riding at an advanced test has enormous benefits to your own safety, your riding enjoyment and quite possibly your insurance premium.
At the Skills Day you can benefit from RAMG’s expertise and have a one hour free assessment ride which will point out the strengths and weaknesses of your riding. Signing up for the Skills for Life training package is one of the best investments a rider can make. If you sign up for an IAM Roadsmart training programme on the day you’ll save a whopping £50 off the usual price of £149.99.
Come along to Redditch Fire Station on May 28 to see a Blood Bike, meet some of the riders who ride it and have a free assessed ride with the Redditch Advanced Motorcyclists who trained them.
