Yesterday I decided to join the Green Team B Run. What a super ride-out, ably led by Rick Watson, and back marked by Sid Collyer. We rode down lovely back roads for mile after mile, with no pressure to speed and no need to map read. We ended up at the recently refurbished Nelsons’ Diner, and I had the best bacon sandwich ever! Thanks to all involved.

Thanks to you and all of the team for organising and presenting the day – it’s obvious that a mass of work has gone into the preparation. Overall, a very worthwhile event that kept me engaged for the whole day. All club members can benefit from this – associates, full members & observers. The interactive style and discussion generated was great. I found Howie’s stuff on visual perception really interesting & a useful insight into possible reasons for other road user’s behaviour. I also enjoyed the discussions around videos and photos of riding situations. The stuff on bike mechanics was very good and thought provoking too – I’ve now looked up my wheelbase & trail dimensions! I think it’s quite right for this course to concentrate on what all this means to us as riders, rather than dwelling too much on the maths.

I am new to IAM, but not to biking. I found this an excellent introduction to the whole advanced riding topic and I am glad I did it at the beginning of my Advanced Riding course.
