PEOPLE who would like to know more about riding a motorcycle or scooter can go along to a free training day being held at the weekend.

Salisbury Motorcycle and Light Car Club is holding an open day on Sunday (April 28) at Salisbury Livestock Market so that prospective riders can try out two wheels for themselves.

Bikes, protective clothing, helmets, and expert supervision will all be provided free of charge.

Kevin Chapman of Salisbury Motorcycle and Light Car Club, who instigated the project last year, said: “The objective of the open day is to provide an opportunity for anyone to come along and try for themselves what it is like to ride a bike and at the same time get some expert advice on how to get started or advancing to the next stage.

“Two wheeled transport can provide a genuine low cost solution to personal transport as well as having some practical advantages over car use and we would like to extend the benefits of motorcycles and scooters to as many people as possible.”
