Sponsored Advanced Rider Course

The RideUP scheme sponsors young riders and those new to riding larger bikes through the Advanced Rider Course. If you’ve passed your A2 (or above) bike test in the past two years and are under 30 years of age then you can apply for RideUP sponsorship.

“There are many skills to riding well on the road. Some can be copied from watching riders on the race track but I know from having done both, many aren’t – including your line through bends and dealing efficiently with traffic. RideUP is a brilliant scheme which will let you into the secrets of Advanced Riding and make you safer on the road.”
