A female-only bike skills day from IAM RoadSmart launches next month at Thruxton.

The session will focus on handling and skills development, with the main aim of the event to help attendees get the most from their riding.

Amanda Smith, IAM RoadSmart head of field service delivery, said: “Our members have been asking for a women-only skills day so they could learn skills at their own pace with like-minded follow bikers. We were more than happy to provide this.

“This day is for all female riders who want to improve their skills whilst also having some fun.”

What’s covered in the sessions?

A wide range of subjects will be covered on the day with vanishing points and cornering, braking, gear selection and accelerator use featuring heavily throughout the day.

The event takes place on 19 September at Thruxton circuit and will cost £135 per person.

Participating riders are required to take their own bike to the event.
