Due to the Coronavirus pandemic we’ve cancelled the Biker Down sessions until September 2021.
Biker Down! is a free nationwide scheme that was devised to provide the tools to help bikers if they're involved in a crash. The scheme is in partnership with London Ambulance Service, Transport for London and the Metropolitan Police.
The course lasts roughly three hours and is split into three modules:

"I attended a course in June at Norwood fire station. I've carried my blast bandage ever since. Today, I used my knowledge at an accident where a car turned right and cut across a biker. Thanks to you guys, I was prepared and able to sort it out. Thankfully, everybody walked away... But just wanted to say to you guys, your course rocks and to keep doing it, it was invaluable today. Thanks."
"Just completed the Biker down session. Fantastic! Enthusiastically presented by professionals. Good pace, content, and well received. I can’t thank your colleagues enough. Well done London Fire Brigade and London Ambulance Service."
