Cornish Bikers' Safety Campaign
8:01am 3rd December 2011
Cornish bikers step up a campaign for better road safety.
The Motorcycle Action Group is calling on the council for better surfaces and maintenance
It's also joining a national fight against new EU rules for riders.
Truro rep Phil Neale says the Duchy needs a voice: "Motorcycling in Cornwall makes up about two percent of the traffic, which is about double the national average. Probably because we have better weather, it's easier to get in and out of towns and cheaper to run than cars, we've got a huge motorcycle population."
Phil is urging riders in the Duchy to join up, "because they, like the rest of us, need to protect motorcycling from unnecessary legislation and to promote it as a good thing to do, to make sure that it lasts for the future."
