BikeSafe Show – Castle Combe – June 4th

Following the success of last years event at Castle Combe race circuit, this year the South West Region Police Forces are returning to the Wiltshire circuit to beat their total of 267 riders completing a one hour on road assessed ride with a Police Advanced Motorcyclist followed by a fifteen minute track experience around Castle Combe. And we’ll be there, too.

The date for this year is Saturday June 4th, and Castle Combe will be buzzing with showgoers and riders wanting to learn a it more about bike control and how to be fast and smooth and safe on road and track. Riders who take the opportunity to learn from the BikeSafe instructors will get a und the circuit supervised by Castle Combe’s own riders for a 15 minute session on track after completing a one hour on road ride out with a Police Advanced Motorcyclist. BikeSafe is a great scheme which some of the Fast Bikes team have already completed – and the rest will soon.


To book for the event just print off the application form and send it to the address within, complete with a cheque for £25. Riders will then be notified of their allocated time slot for the ride out and track session. It is important that all fields are completed fully and email addresses printed clearly. Spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis – and last year the places filled very quickly. Riders taking part in the track session are required to wear one piece leathers, two piece zip together leathers or suitable equivalent.

In addition to the track and road experiences, Steve Colley will be doing his  Motorcycle Stunt Show,  and there’ll be a host of local dealers, tuners, and accessory suppliers exhibiting in the show area.  You can even come and talk to us lot – we’ll be there too.

Parking and entry to show is totally free, spectators welcome.


It’s worth noting that Castle Combe Circuit noise test bikes for track use rather enthusiastically – so it’s worth taking a quick look at their website to see if your bike will pass their noise tests.
