The Biker Down Toolkit

This presentation will present the new Biker Down Toolkit which has been developed to assist in the delivery of the free three-hour Biker Down session. Biker Down teaches riders what to do if they are the first on the scene at a collision involving a fellow biker.

Topics covered by the course include: how to manage the scene if you come across a collision; how to help an injured rider by providing early intervention at the roadside; and motorcycle-specific first aid – how to remove a helmet and practical tips on safer riding
