Important Note on BWAM events

These events are solely for Members and Associates of Bournemouth & Wessex Advanced Motorcyclists. If you want to become a member then take a look at what we do and find out about BWAM and the IAM advanced motorcycle test.

All BWAM Group organised rides are conducted according to the IAM's guidelines for Group Organised Rides:

  • There will always be an Observer participating in (if not leading) the ride.
  • All Associates must have been cleared for group riding.
  • Participants in group organised rides are responsible for their own safety and compliance with the law, and should at all times ride within their own capabilities.

Any ride that doesn't meet these requirements is deemed not to be a group organised ride, and will not be associated with BWAM or the IAM.

MRC sessions are offered monthly to any BWAM Member who would like to know if their present form would meet or exceed the IAM-RoadSmart Advanced Riding Standard. Much like the pre-test that was conducted prior to passing your IAM test, the Observer will once again give you a detailed de-brief of the session followed by a written report, including an action plan of what to practise and/or where to go from here. To book, please email nigel.williams14@outlook.com (ie by replying directly to this email) by 11pm on 11th December in order for observers to be easily arranged for you.

 

Conditions are as follows:-

  • You must be a current ‘paid-up’ BWAM and IAM Roadsmart Member (No exceptions).
  • You will be asked to sign a disclaimer confirming that you are legal to be on the road.  
  • You will be expected to make a £10 contribution towards the Observers fuel cost.
  • You will be expected to possess the latest edition of Police Motorcycle Roadcraft.

 

To help me pair you with the right Observer, please provide the following information:-

  1. Your name
  2. How many ‘years-months’ have you held full IAM Roadsmart Membership?
  3. Do you hold any of the following FELLOW/F1RST/MASTERS?
  4. Who was your Observer or Group Name if you were observed by another IAM Roadsmart Group?
  5. Session subject choice:- Roadcraft topic(s), General assessment, F1RST Register potential, Masters potential.

 

This month’s MRC starts at :-

 

09:30hrs, Forest Inn, Forest Links Rd, Ferndown, BH22 9PH. (next to Ferndown Police Station).

 

Please note:- If you are simply wanting to get some quality miles under your belt (which can only be good) then I would encourage you to turn up at Forest Inn on any Saturday morning and make yourself known.

Winter Small Group SUNDAY Rides

The committee has decided to put on a programme of small group winter rides on the third Sunday of each month. These will typically be about 100/120 miles or so with a comfort/refreshments break half way. Due to current Covid restrictions IT IS ESSENTIAL that participants log in with Robert Purry on the morning of the Friday before a run. This is so that Robert can arrange the appropriate number of leaders. It is envisaged that these will be informal leisurely runs using the buddy system. Robert will e-mail a map and Garmin route to all participants.
