Cumbria Police have launched their annual BikeSafe campaign as the biking season begins.
The initiative has now been run by the force for a number of years and over the next six months, workshops across the county will educate motorcyclists and provide advanced training on road safety.
Workshops will be held in Kendal, Carlisle and Workington Fire and Rescue community centres.
Sergeant Jo House, Cumbria Police BikeSafe Co-ordinator, said:
“BikeSafe aims to bridge the gap between having a licence and getting structured training. Regardless of how much or how many years’ experience you have, there is always something to learn when it comes to staying safe on two wheels."
