What a fabulous weekend! Amazing weather, fabulous rides and lovely people in Gods own country. Huge thanks to Lou and Steve for the organisation, Steve and Ian for such brilliant runs and Dawn and Candice for being the best room-mates. :-*

Just to add my tuppence and to join in with everyone’s enthusiastic applause … wonderful … and I never imagined that the second 7Ws could ever equal the first … but guess what. Tyres beginning to round off nicely with all those incredible curves… must go back and get some photos at some point 😉 just so I can show friends and family what I have been gibbering about for 24 hours. Many thanks to all the event organisers and their helpers … and also so very much to all the friendly people who shared a wonderful weekend.

Thanks for putting the course on. It’s always good to learn and there were a number of new things that I took away. It was a good re-enforcement of the IAM and police handbooks.  I liked the MiB stuff and it was useful to play with the turning circles and lean angles on the toy bikes which re-enforced the theory. Likewise the bicycle wheel also re-enforced the theory. The objectives and content of the course are very similar to the police bike safe course which is structured as half a day of theory and a few hours of practising what you have learnt. That worked well for me and I think that you could condense the content or change the pace to do something similar.
