At the time of writing the September date is still going ahead. If you could check back here 1-2 weeks before the event, and then contact the Observer running it please.


OK Mike,
Will do

ALL FUTURE EVENTS CANCELLED

Following a lot of discussion at the latest Senior Observers meeting revolving around attendance figures, insurance, costs, course structure, timing etc. it was agreed that in future the slow riding techniques and practise would be covered on a one-to-one basis with an Associate’s allocated Observer.

Hi Julian
Feel free to give one of the Observers a call if you need any assistance always happy to help. Not sure where you live but a good practice place is the car park behind PC World usually pretty quiet.

That's a great shame, Slow riding is probably one of the toughest things to master and I can imagine adds to confidence in riding.

That's correct Geoff, however all that is changing is the delivery mechanism. It will still be covered on a one-to-one basis and in a more timely manner to fit in with your (and other Associates') test preparation. This way also allows for it to be covered more than once if need be in small doses, rather than in one long busy session with other people.
