Who we are
RideSafe BackSafe is a biker-friendly road safety initiative that focuses on the well-being of all moped, scooter and motorcycle riders, using regular input from YOU, the motorcyclists. Our aims are simple. . . to promote the benefits of quality rider training, to highlight the need for all riders to wear the best protective clothing possible, wear a back protector at all times and to encourage everyone on the road to ‘THINK Bike’ and ‘THINK Biker’.
More and more people are using motorbikes / scooters to commute to work – why not? Its a great idea! It saves time and money. We’ve put together a short guide to help you stay safer on the roads.
We have a number of Galleries available showing pictures from various events and meet ups. Feel free to browse through by following the link below.
Statistically young riders are more likely to have a collision. There isn’t much that you can do about your age, but there are things you can do to make yourself safer on the roads. For safer riding tips click on the link below.
