Government ‘Road Map’ leading to the return of training for 2021

26

Feb,2021

Earlier this week the Government announced its road map for 2021 allowing businesses to plan ahead for the year. The Driving Standards Authority and other road safety charities a few days later advised that after the 12th April both training and examinations will be allowed to continue. With a clear date set in the calendar, we will once again be open for business. This includes advanced motorcycle training, back to biking and also our off road trials option.

Restructuring of our trials experience days for 2021

5

Jan,2021

New for April 2021 Over the last 5 months we have been busy trying to secure another ‘off road’ facility, which was ideally similar in design to our previous site. This was in an attempt to replicate a secure/safe location, which tested and challenged slow speed control over a variety of different terrains whilst catering for varying levels of ability. (It should be noted this was never intended to produce trials riders, but to give competent road riders an opportunity to develop their slow speed control on off road terrains.) Despite considering and viewing many options, none were suitable or similar in ‘set up’ to our previous site. Realising the need to be more flexible with our approach we opted to produce a new ‘off road’ experience based on the facilities that we could actually offer. With that in mind the two options are:- • A personalised ‘off road’ experience as a day guest at a members only 10 acre dedicated facility. The terrain is able to accommodate complete novices up to far more capable riders. Abiding by the strict club rules ensures you will be our sole guest and have access to the whole site. We will provide you

Second Lock-down / courses postponed

3

Nov,2020

Following the weekends announcement from the government, the Driving Standards Authority, Driving Instructors Authority, Rospa and many others have decided that motorcycle training and tests will not be permitted during this period of lock down. Based on this specific guidance any of our training courses scheduled to take place between 5th November and the 2nd December will now be postponed.

Temporary loss of ‘off road’ facility

27

Jun,2020

Despite having assurances for 2020 from the land owner, we have overnight lost access to the ‘off road’ facility. For those scheduled to attend, I have already made contact directly and can only apologise, but this really is totally out of our control. To have such a facility has been very rewarding in observing riders improve their slow speed control whilst having a huge amount of fun. Whilst this is now on hold, we are actively exploring other suitable locations.

Coronavirus update

May,2020

Planned transition to resume motorcycle training. Road Training It is our intention to resume training in June, but clearly the format of the courses will have to slightly change to meet current social distancing guidance. Whilst the training and interaction with instructor or second rider can be easily achieved, the main issue is maintaining the rules and reducing risk at comfort breaks. The interim solution will be for riders attending to be self sufficient with food and drinks and if required we will have a list of toilet facilities around the county that can be used. The radios will be disinfected before and after each session and hand sanitizer is an essential new accessory for all riders tool kits! We have sent emails to all the riders who have been waiting or had their courses postponed. Off Road Towards the end of June we will resume at the trials facility. The location is remote and there is no risk from any interaction with third parties. The bikes controls will be frequently disinfected so the only possible interaction will between rider & instructor if assistance is required where rider and bike part company! Our booking forms have been amended to reflect

Coronavirus Update

Mar,2020

Last week we took the decision to postponed all training bookings until the end of May. This also coincided with Rospa who also postponed all tests that were scheduled to be completed before the start of June. We are however still receiving new requests to provide advanced training in this period. Whilst I accept social distancing can be achieved, I think its more important not to potentially add to the burden on A & E through risk of accident. Obviously, very happy to respond to any queries such as ‘what is involved in the training or test procedure’. Once we get light at the end of the tunnel we will be back up and running again.
