BIKES IN BUS LANES – UNDER THREAT !!!
As you know, we spent two years campaigning for the City Council to allow Bikes in Bus Lanes which turned out to be a great success. It helped to free up congestion and was a lot safer for us Riders than sitting in a queue of traffic waiting to be rear-ended or being knocked off as we filter between the queues. Unfortunately with new Council Leaders in place after Local Elections, it looks like we are set for the removal of ALL Bus Lanes in Coventry. Our new Council Leader thinks it’s a great idea to remove the them altogether – “it worked in Liverpool”.
We at Coventry Riders Action Group are dismayed at this decision and we are looking into what can be done to reverse the decision and we will let you know as soon as possible if there is anything that can be done.
In the meantime we ask that you contact your Local Representative on the City Council to register your disapproval Please take a look here and follow the online instructions – www.writetothem.com

Bikers should aspire to be the best rider they can be! Passing your motorcycle test doesn’t mean you’ve learnt everything there is to know about riding, rather riders should consider it as the first step in a continual learning curve. The RoSPA Advanced Motorcycling Test is the next step on that curve. Check it out here.
