WHAT'S OUR BACKGROUND?
NWRoAR are the sole RoSPA motorcycle group for North Wales, covering Ynys Môn (Anglesey), Gwynedd, Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire and Wrexham. Our aim, as a group of volunteers, is to develop our members’ advanced motorcycling skills in order to enhance their riding experience and increase their level of riding enjoyment. As a byproduct of raising onroad awareness and skills advanced riders also reduce their risk of becoming involved in a road traffic incident. This doesn’t necessarily mean riding more slowly; it means riding more skillfully, confidently and, more safely.
You can find NWRoAR members involved in a wide range of riding activities including charity runs with local clubs, riding blood bikes, escorting cycle road races and triathlons, as Observers supporting the North Wales Police BikeSafe scheme and generally enjoying the wonderful variety and quality of roads on ‘our patch’!

WHO WE ARE
Here at NWRoAR, we know that sometimes all it takes to improve riding skills is a little support. Since our founding in 2019, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring our team’s fresh ideas and passion to the development of our Associates' riding abilities. As a result all our Associates pass with the minimum of a RoSPA 'Silver' grade and usually, a RoSPA 'Gold'!

ROSPA APPROVED ADVANCED RIDING COURSES
North Wales RoSPA Advanced Rider Tutors are dedicated to raising the standard of motorbike riding on our roads. Our courses are tailored to Associates' needs and capabilities.
The course is based around the skills and knowledge found in "Motorcycle Roadcraft: The Police Rider's Handbook" which can be applied to all riders - with practice and enjoyment!
We aim to provide the opportunity for all members to explore the amazing roads available to us across the whole of North Wales.
On occasions these will be extended further afield with visits to specific places of interest.
As a member, if you wish to organise a tour beyond our borders we'd be delighted to include it in our schedule!
