Motorcycle riders are gearing up for a summer of riding, and the season revs up with the Kickstart ‘Have a Go’ event this Sunday at Canterbury Agricultural Park.
The event is aimed at encouraging riders to up-skill, regardless of their level of experience or how long they’ve been riding and brings together riders, retailers and trainers.
“Unfortunately motorcyclists in Canterbury continue to feature highly in our crash statistics and whether a rider or other road user is at fault, it’s inevitable that the rider will come off second-best”, said Waimakariri District Council Road Safety Coordinator Kathy Graham.
“We encourage all riders to get along to Kickstart and chat to the Ride Forever trainers and other riders to learn more about what they can do to stay safe on the roads. We can’t control what other road users do but we can certainly improve our own skills.”
Free instruction is on offer by Ride Forever trainers who will be running slow speed skills challenges during the day.
A range of guest speakers will talk about topics such as new safety technology, lane filtering and helmet safety.
The event features special guest presenter and Cantabrian, Avalon Biddle, who recently made history by being the first woman to win the NZ Supersport 600cc title.
Kickstart ‘Have a Go’ 2020 is a collaboration between Waimakariri and Selwyn District Councils, Christchurch City Council, Ride Forever trainers, Police and local stakeholders.
It will be held on Sunday 18 October 2020 at the Canterbury Agricultural Park, Curletts Road, Christchurch, 9.30am – 1.30pm.
