Welcome to RoSPA Advanced Motorcyclists Coventry

Interesting in joining the club?  Click here for joining instructions.

 

aboutOur aim is to help existing motorcyclists to get more from their riding and to gain the skills and knowledge to achieve the standard for the RoSPA Advanced Motorcycle Test.

There are many myths about advanced riding most of which are not true. Our main focus is road safety, but that does not mean we don’t like to have fun riding bikes. Quite the opposite, a well-trained rider is usually quicker, and definitely safer, than an untrained rider.

If you'd like to improve your riding, why not come and visit us at one of our regular club nights. We'll be happy to tell you a bit more about it and give you some idea as to what you can expect to gain from it. 

Based in South Coventry, the bulk of our membership comes from throughout Warwickshire but also includes the surrounding counties.

 

BIKER DOWN - Road Safety For Bikers

 

Did you know we also help run the Bikder Down courses for Warwickshire fire service? 

This was last weeks course held at the Rugby fire station. 

That's Chris delivering the last module to the class and Paul enjoying some well-deserved rest on the floor. 

These courses are an amazing way to spend 3 hours and gain some much need knowledge of accident scene management, first aid and some proactive suggestions on how to ride with less risk. 

We also offer assessment rides after the course.  Book a free course using the below link.

New Associate Experience 

So what's it like joining our group?

Paul Hewitson gives us some feedback...

"I am new to the Coventry RoSPA group and have to say been made very welcome.

I came to a couple of the group meetings before joining to see how things worked etc and again was brought straight into the conversations etc.

I was given an Observer for my training and arranged my first ride to see what my base standard was.

The training team and Observer were in contact to arrange the ride out and when I met the Observer and we had a great chat at first then worked out a route for the ride.

We stopped a couple of times to discuss points along the ride.

I am always given great feedback at the end and a full report emailed to me.

We then arranged further ride outs between ourselves and great communication to arrange these.

I have now done 3 rides in all with two full training rides and I am progressing well.

My Observer is now giving me a radio with an earpiece to get instructions and directions.

Really great training and homework referencing the books that were supplied also."

Thanks Paul. Sounds like you are having fun and learning at the same time.
