Motorbike Safety Schemes
You may have seen our yellow 'Ride Safely' signs. Not only do these serve as a road safety reminder, but on the reverse of each sign you will find a grid reference sticker. In the event of an emergency or breakdown, the grid reference can be given to help the emergency services identify your exact location. The route and road number is also given for information.
Bikesafe is a national police-led initiative that seeks to engage with motorcyclists in a conflict free environment, aimed at increasing their awareness and creating a genuine desire to learn about safe riding.
We provide FREE places for Powys residents.

The Crash Card is a UK wide initiative introduced by the Ambulance Motorcycle Club. The card is filled out with your details and sits in the lining of your helmet with a small green dot placed on the furthest corner of the visor.
Should you be involved in a collision, the green dot tells the emergency services that personal details are stored in your helmet, which will help with your emergency treatment.
These are Free for powys residents
