Riding a Blood Bike at night, and in all weather conditions, can be hazardous. And the loads that we carry are always important, but in some cases getting them safely to where they are needed could save a patients life. Therefore, we insist that all of our riders hold a recongnised advanced riding qualification, whihc is either through the IAM or ROSPA.
Volunteers who drive our cars and vans also need to hold an Advanced Qualification, or to be assessed by our own "in house" observers who belong to one of the organisations below,
Blood Biker or not, taking advanced training is never a bad thing, and we recommend that everyone continually improves their levels of skill. With roads getting busier all the time, drivers being distracted by in car gadgetary, and the maintenance of our roads seemingly on the decline, we all need to be on top of our game. Riding or driving to the system you will learn by taking an advanced course will make sure that you are as safe on the road as you can be.
If you are interested in taking some additional training, why not contact one of the organisations below to find our more?
