Boroughs to host Biker Down! London courses

2WL biker down

Free sessions to teach riders what to do if they are the first on the scene at a collision which involves a fellow biker are taking place on a monthly basis during 2019.

The four-hour Biker Down! London course, organised by the London Fire Brigade, is taking place at fire stations in Barking and Dagenham, Hounslow and Lambeth.

Topics covered include:

  • How to manage the scene if you come across a collision
  • How to help an injured rider by providing early intervention at the roadside
  • Motorcycle-specific first aid – how to remove a helmet and practical tips on safer riding

Once they’ve completed the course participants receive a first aid kit designed to be carried under the seat of a motorbike and a certificate of attendance.

Participants also qualify for a discount to attend the BikeSafe-London Rider Skills Day, delivered by the Met Police’s Motorcycle Safety Team.
