1 of 1

You can join in a free 200-mile rideout across the Moors and the Dales on Thursday, July 2, and get some expert tuition thrown in.

Biek cops from North Yorkshire Police and the Royal Military Police join a convoy of riders through a 200-miletour of some of the county’s finest riding roads.And all the riders have the option of receiving a "no-holds-barred riding analysis" from their tour guides.

“Even the most experienced riders will take tough criticism and practical advice from police motorcyclists,” said Road Policing Group Constable Dave Burlingham, who is leading Thursday’s tour. “They know we have trained to a high level, can ride safely in any conditions - very quickly if we have to - and have paid our dues as riders. However long you have been riding motorcycles you can always learn, and this tour is an excellent way to combine advanced rider training with a great day out across the Moors and Dales.”

Advanced riders from local clubs will help out too.

The run is part of North Yorkshire Police’s special safety operation for Scarborough Bike Week, which began on Friday. The nine-day event, climaxes in the Cock of the North races at Oliver’s Mount, this weekend.

There is no charge for joining the Observed Ride, and participants are asked to be at the Bikers’ Village, at Scarborough Bike Week, for registration at 9.15am on Thursday, with a full tank of petrol. You should be back about 5pm.
