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.

At risk of sounding tediously repetitive, many thanks to all those involved who made this a great weekend. However, unlike Simon’s memorable dressing down on the first night – “you know who you are, you know what you did, enough said, don’t do it again” – I do ask for all our sakes that you DO please do it again because in my view the 7Ws weekends encapsulate all that is good at TVAM.
