MOTORCYCLISTS have the opportunity to talk about issues affecting them on the county’s roads at the next Nottinghamshire Motorcyclist Forum on Tuesday 15th January.

The Forum, which takes place at Mansfield Fire Station, on Rosemary Street, will give motorcyclists the opportunity to discuss relevant topics with other riders.

At the meeting members will have a demonstration of the new motorcycling road safety education resource ‘Ready to Ride’ which is aimed at year 11 students.

Liz Rickards and Phil Gow, from Nottinghamshire County Council’s highways safety team, will be at the meeting to answer any questions raised by members on the night.

Nottinghamshire Motorcyclists Forum is run by the County Council as a public consultation exercise with local riders. Motorcycle rider groups such as BMF, MAG and the IAM are also regular attendees at the meetings. Similar Forums have proved popular and effective elsewhere in the UK.
