Be safe during National Ride to Work Day

POLICE are encouraging motorcyclists to ‘get on’ and use their bikes as part of National Ride to Work Day on Monday.

Cambridgeshire police BikeSafe team are taking part in the ride to work day and are reminding motorcyclists to stay safe on the roads.

BikeSafe is a scheme run by forces around the UK which work with the biking world to help reduce the number of motorcycle rider casualties.

This week is also the Motor Cycle Industry Association’s Motorcycle Week, which is supported by the force and Cambridgeshire County Council’s road safety team.

PC Steve Gedny, Casualty Reduction Officer, said: “This is the fifth year we have supported National Motorcycle Week.

“Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable road users and for them road safety is vital.

“It is important to encourage motorcyclists to sign up to BikeSafe to help increase their ability and confidence, so they can get even more enjoyment from riding.

“We hope motorcyclists will get on their bikes and join us on the ride to work from the Lazy Dayz cafe at 8am.”

The motorcyclists will be meeting at the Lazy Dayz café on the A603 at Wimpole from 7am on Monday, aiming to leave at 8am and finishing at Shire Hall, Cambridge.
