IAM Roadsmart female-only bike skills day to be held next month

1 of 1

The Institute of Advanced Motorists is holding its first ever female-only bike skills event on September 19 at the Thruxton circuit in Hampshire. 

The track event has been designed to focus on riding styles, skills and reasons for riding – specifically geared for women riders who want to learn at their own pace in an environment with like-minded motorcyclists.


Although the day is based on the track, it’s very much not a trackday and the focus is on learning in a safe envirnoment.

On the day, riders can expect to cover:

  • Vanishing points, entry, apex and exit points, how they vary from road to circuit, why and how we use them, where we should position for view, progress and safety together with braking
  • Where to brake, when and how much to brake, how it feels in an emergency
  • Gear selection – how to decide which is the most appropriate gear for the circumstances and control
  • How to use the accelerator/throttle to add stability to the bike when entering corners, blipping or constant accelerator techniques when changing down gears.

The skills day is taking Place on September 19. Riders are required to bring their own bike to take part and prices for the day are £135. Places on the day can be booked by calling 0300 303 1134. Check out the IAM Roadsmart website for more.
