In the last three years (2015 to 2017), 154 riders and pillion passengers have been killed or seriously injured on Buckinghamshire’s roads. Thecourse, which issupported by the County Council and Travel Safe Bucks, aims toreduce the number of bikers killed or injured on the roads.

Mark Shaw, the County Council’sCabinet Member for Transportation, said:“With its winding roads and stunning countryside, Buckinghamshire is understandably popular with bikers – particularly when the weather turns nicer and the bikes come out of the garage for the first time in months. We want everyone to be safe on the roads and the County Council is happy to be supporting TVAM in promoting these workshops.”

Whether you ride a sports, classic, trials or tourer – if you have a full licence and live or ride in Buckinghamshire you’re welcome at BaBB.
