THE THINKING BIKER. The new film produced by Biker Down North America 'The Thinking Biker' has now been released UK wide to all our teams and will start getting used in module 3.
BIKER DOWN ADVENTURE BIKE RIDER is now a thing! Obviously very closely related to the original Biker Down, the Adventure Bike Rider version is aimed at the ever increasing off/on road riders, be they full blown Adventures bikes kitted out for round the WORLD overlanding or Green Roaders (formerly referred to as green laning) out for a day trip. The package is 90% there and has been produced by a small team of fire service colleagues representing the NFCC and with some advisory guidance given by the TRF (Trail Riders Fellowship). We are starting to look at how this will be made available to the general public so watch this space and follow us on facebook at Biker Down UK for updates!

The National Fire Chiefs Council and BIKER DOWN have come together so Fire and Rescue Services and their partners can share advice and information to raise public awareness to support the reduction of motorcycle rider injuries and fatalities in the UK. through increased awareness we aim to encourage people to improve their riding skills, adopt safer habits and provide education to respond in the event of an incident. The focused week of action is scheduled to coincide with motorcycle activity as weather improves and we generally start to see an increase in motorcycle casualties.
