Thank you Jackie, and to everyone else for the day. I actually chose to go to work today in the rain with my new found “cornering in the wet” confidence, and I made it home! (the sight of diesel still scares me though.

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.

I cannot recommend this course enough. I ride through Pirbright bends everyday, and manage the corners competently with only the occasional “OMG” moment. I rode through them again today, putting my new knowledge into practice, and had a great ride – not just quicker, but I felt much more confident and more importantly, had the knowledge that if something did go wrong, I would know what to do. I had a great day yesterday, and I can’t thank you and the other volunteers enough, especially as there are so many of you willing to help us. It was a well run course, and you were all very generous in imparting your knowledge and experience with newer riders. I feel that all the feedback and tips will improve my riding, and it was really great to learn this in a safe environment. I hope to do the course again, to really cement these techniques into my everyday riding to make me a safer rider. Hopefully, next time, I can do it in bad weather – after all, this is England. All in all, the course was an absolute bargain when I think about what I gained in terms of knowledge and confidence, and I would have no hesitation in recommending the course to any rider.
