The London Fire Brigade (LFB) is backing this new scheme. Called Biker Down!, it comes in the wake of an alarming rise in motorcycle crashes in the British capital. Accidents were up almost 10 percent between 2013 and 2014. In hard numbers, that's up from 454 to 501. The LFB is often the first emergency service on the scene, but the LFB recognises that in an urban environment, another (passing) motorcyclist is often ahead of them by vital minutes. Hence Biker Down! The idea is that bikers can attend a free first-aid workshop and pick up some life-saving skills. The course was actually established in June 2015. But the next opportunity is 29th November 2015. There on two sessions on the day. The first starts at 0900 hours. The second is at 1400 hours. Here's an email address.
