Biker Down Workshop

Biker Down Banner

Hi Folks,
Now that the new year is under way and we start to think about the riding season ahead there is an opportunity to learn what you could do if, God forbid, you came across an accident. These workshops are being run by the Fire & Rescue Services and they have given over one of the evenings just for the BMW Club Oxford Section members. Spaces are of necessity limited but there are a few left. If you wish to learn more, put your name forward to me, John Broad ( in the next couple of weeks please. If you can supply me with your name, a contact telephone number, your email address and post code I will add you to the list. The details of the workshop are as follows:-


Date: Thursday 4th February.

Venue: Slade Park Fire Station, Horspath Driftway, Headington, OX3 7JG

Time: workshop starts at 7.30pm and lasts around 3 hours.

Parking: Parking for cars and motorcycles is available car park, in rear of Station. Please go through the (opened especially) gates. Please take care in the yard as it is used by emergency vehicles. You will be met and taken to the training room.

General: You don’t need to bring your bike but please feel free to do so if you want to.

You DO need to bring a crash helmet, preferably full-face if you have one. If, for any reason, you don’t have a helmet, we may be able to provide one for you to use during workshop.

Promotion: The Biker Down programme is new in Oxfordshire and we’d like to use photographs and comments from the evening to help encourage others to attend. At the workshop you may be asked permission to take your photo, or for comment on the course, either by us or by Media photographers/reporters, which we hope you will be happy to do. If you don’t want to be involved in this promotion, you are very welcome to decline – just let us know you don’t want to be pictured.

On the evening, if you are going to be late or have to cancel at short notice, please call (special number) 07711 606979. Please don’t call the Fire Station.
