The Isle of Wight is hosting a motorcycle safety course to prevent an increase in crashes.
The Council's Better Riding course involves theory and practical training aimed at all levels of experience.
In the last three years, 76 motorcyclists have been killed or injured on the Island's roads.
The course helps motorcyclists ride defensively and prepare for hazards on the road.
A variety of techniques will be covered including advanced riding skills, overtaking, braking and filtering as well as basic first aid.
Based at Sandown Fire Station on Thursday evenings.
This course is a great opportunity for people new to riding or those in need of a refresher course to learn about the fundamentals of being safer on the road. Unfortunately, often through no fault of their own, bikers form a disproportionately high percentage of the UK's serious road traffic incidents and we feel this course - and its sister Better Driving course aimed at car drivers - is important to help make our roads safer."
