Insurance specialist Bikesure is putting its full support behind Ride to Work Week 2016. Staff who ride to work can ‘dress down’ for the whole week and the company will be raffling 2 paid CBTs for staff who aren’t currently riders. Race fans can also look out for posts from Bikesure ambassadors Carl Fogarty and Rory Schlein, who will be promoting the campaign through their own social media feeds.

The Ride to Work Week team will be in the Grosvenor Shopping Centre in Northampton, Monday to Friday during opening times. There will be a display of commuter bikes from KTM, Honda and Suzuki and MCIA staff will be on hand to chat about the many benefits of a commute by motorcycle, scooter or moped and how to get started.
For Northamptonshire’s motorcycle riders there is an opportunity for skills development with BikeSafe and IAM:
A special Ride to Work Week Bridging the Gap workshop will run over two days – Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th June. The first day is a BikeSafe workshop with assessed ride and the second is an introduction to Post Test Training by IAM.
