Police officers are teaming up to promote bike safety at an event in Chapel-en-le-Frith next month.

The event, which runs from 10am to 2pm on April 4 at Speedycom Performance Ltd, on Manchester Road, will see safer neighbourhood officers working with the Roads Policing Bike Safe team to chat to riders about how they can sign up to the scheme, a police-led motorcycle project which aims to reduce the number of bikers being hurt on the roads.

PC Andy Crosthwaite, from the Chapel and Chinley Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We will be there throughout the day to offer advice around road safety and equipment, along with speaking to people about how they can enrol onto the scheme.”
