It was perfect motorcycling weather for a Biker Drop-In session last Sunday.

It was one of a series to be held this summer at Winslow Fire Station, in a new partnership between Bucks Fire & Rescue Service and Milton Keynes Advanced Motorcyclists.

Road safety officer for Bucks Fire & Rescue and keen biker Keith Wheeler said: “Government statistics show that motorcyclists are about 35 times more likely to be killed in a road traffic collision than car occupants, per mile ridden.”

Mike Annetts and Colin Potter from Milton Keynes Advanced Motorcyclists, pictured, were on hand to talk to riders about advanced rider training, offer safer riding tips, and promote the fire service’s Biker Down courses.

The next Winslow Biker Drop-Ins are on June 15 and July 13.
