Skills to save lives at the roadside!

Never move the patient! Never take off their helmet! Just a few of the myths about dealing with a motorbike accident. Biker Down courses give you the skills to manage a seriously injured motorcyclist until the ambulance arrives.

Run by Dr Ian Mew (Intensive Care consultant and Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Doctor) and PC Chris Smith QPM (a Police Traffic Officer and Advanced Police Motorcycle Instructor with over 20 years experience), there are few more qualified to teach how to keep people alive in the event of motorcycle accident!

Biker Down courses usually run between 7.00pm-10.00pm.

Topics covered include:

(1) How to manage the scene of an accident

(2) What you can realistically do to keep someone alive until the ambulance arrives

(3) How you can make yourself more visible and less likely to be in an accident

Biker Down courses are FREE! Not only that, thanks to Bournemouth Bikes, you go home with a free first aid kit, small enough to fit on your bike, but capable enough to help save a life.
