Crime Commissioner backs 'BikeSafe' initiative

Cumbria's Police and Crime Commissioner ia backing the 'BikeSafe' initiative being launched by Cumbria Police.

The campaign is aiming to improve road safety of bikers across Cumbria, and highlight the importance of wearing a helmet and paying attention to road conditions.

"In the recent public consultation events across the County, people have raised their concerns about road safety, as a result I have set road safety as a key priority for Cumbria Constabulary to tackle.

"I welcome the BikeSafe initiative as it doesn't matter how old you are or how experienced you are, it is important to receive a few hours of refresher training that may just save your life or the lives of others."

– Cumbria's Police and Crime Commissioner, Richard Rhodes
