Students will also have the opportunity to try their hand at riding a motorcycle under the watchful eye of trained instructors.

2015 sees the return of Adelaide Motorbike Insurers for their 12th year along with Blackhorse as our main sponsors who over the years have been a tremendous benefit not only to the festival, but also to the motorcycle fraternity.

Our official charity for next year’s festival will be Eilish Degnan cancer foundation. This charity was formed by Gerry Degnan, Eilish’s son. The aim of the charity is to raise funds to help children suffering from all forms of terminal illness and give their families a brief respite from the daily burdens of their debilitating disease with day trips and holidays
and even meeting with local heroes, which brings a little happiness into their lives. For more information visit www.eilish-degnan-cancer-foundation.org

Our own presence at the show will be through the provision of the Biker NI Safety (Crash) Card which will be available on the Bikesafe stand.

“Biker NI Safety Card”

crashcard-250The “Biker NI Safety Card” brings the “Ambulance Motorcycle Club” Crash Card initiative to Northern Ireland.

It is supported by the major agencies involved in keeping us safe on the road: PSNI Bikesafe – Northern Ireland Ambulance Service (NIAS) – Northern Ireland Fire & Rescue Service (NIFRS).

Motorcyclists are provided free of charge with a card, which is place inside their helmet as a medical alert, details which the rider has written on the card provides vital information for attending ambulance crews or emergency responders if the motorcyclist is injured in a road traffic collision or unable to talk coherently because of concussion or having been knocked out.

To let those attending know about this vital information the rider places a sticker on the outside of the helmet, on the right hand side, (NOT on the visor or attachments) indicating that a rider or pillion is carrying a safety card inside the lining of their helmet.

Bikesafe

bikesafelogo250Bikesafe assessments are FREE and are conducted solely by PSNI Advanced Traffic Branch motorcyclists. By passing on their knowledge, skills and experience, police motorcyclists can advise you on how to become a safer, more competent rider and help you avoid some of the most common causes of accident and death.

They can also help you to increase your ability and confidence, so you can get even more enjoyment from riding your motorcycle.

The BikeSafe concept is designed to get the rider thinking, subsequently developing riding skills, which creates more time for the rider to react. Motorcycle riders have a great deal to think about, as road and traffic conditions change continuously requiring constant alterations to speed and position.

Although it is particularly suitable for riders returning or making a return to biking after a period of absence, as well as sports bike riders, the one-hour assessment is also open to anyone who rides a smaller commuter bike or scooter.

One of the main lessons you will learn will be how to identify your mistakes and bad habits, their consequences and how you can correct them.
