On April 2nd, Caffeine and Machine in Stratford-Upon-Avon for the first time played host to a special event aimed at promoting road safety for motorcyclists. Organised by the Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership and Project EDWARD (Every Day Without A Road Death), the event drew in a crowd of enthusiasts, advocates and experts.
The event featured a range of activities, including a rider safety zone, where visitors could try out different bikes and learn about safe riding practices. The event received strong support from BikeSafe, Bikerdown, National Highways, IAM Roadsmart, Mental Health Motorbike, and ROSPA.
In addition to the motorcycle activities, there were talks and presentations from various experts on the importance of road safety for riders. Topics included the use of helmets and other protective gear, sharing the road with motorists, and how important post-training is to keep your skills up to date.
The event also highlighted the work being done by the Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership and Project EDWARD to promote road safety throughout the UK. Project EDWARD is an initiative that aims to reduce the number of road deaths to zero. This year, the Project EDWARD week of action will take place from 15-19 May.
The event at Caffeine and Machine was an important opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of road safety for riders and motorists. With riders involved in 20% of all road-related incidents, it’s more important than ever to ensure that riders are safe on the roads.
The Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership and its local partners are doing vital work to promote road safety, and events like this one are an important part of their efforts. By bringing together experts, enthusiasts and advocates, they’re helping to create a culture of safety that will benefit everyone who uses the roads.
In conclusion, the event at Caffeine and Machine was a fantastic opportunity to learn about safe riding practices, try out different bikes, and hear from experts on the importance of road safety. It’s events like these that help to make our roads safer for everyone, and we commend the Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership and its partners for their tireless efforts in promoting road safety.
