Motorcyclists in the Newtown area have the opportunity to become safer riders thanks to a road safety course that is now available.

Through Welsh Government funding, Biker Down is provided and delivered by Powys County Council’s Road Safety Unit in partnership with Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service.

The three-hour course covers topics such as collision scene management, emergency first aid, helmet removal and the science of being seen.

The courses will be held in Newtown on May 19, July 21 and September 22.

The council’s Road Safety Unit will also be able to take the Biker Down course to existing motorcycle clubs.

The unit is making the ‘Crash Card’ scheme available to any motorcyclist who uses the county’s roads. The card contains the personal details of the motorcyclist and sits in the lining of their helmet and can be used by the emergency services should they ever be involved in a collision. 

For information on any of these schemes or to book a place, contact the Road Safety Unit on road.safety@powys.gov.uk.
