Product description


I think it's a fantastic book. It's just what biking needs. --Maria Costello MBE, TT racer

At last - an intelligent and non-patronising approach to rider training. The perfect introduction for a novice, and 31 years after passing my test I learnt stuff too. --Hugo Wilson, Editor, Classic Bike

I wish this book had existed when I was starting out. It's packed full of information that will make motorcycling more enjoyable and safer for everyone. Every motorcyclist, not just learners, should own a copy. --Peter Baker, Deputy Editor, Motor Cycle News

About the Author

Sean Hayes learned to ride in 1991 - only to learn that a fellow student lost a left in a dreadful on-road training accident. When Sean asked his instructor how this could happen, the reply was: 'Well, she obviously couldn't ride, could she?'. Flabbergasted, Sean began talking to new riders to find out how training could be improved. The conclusions were obvious: treat customers with respect, and offer a syllabus which produced a safe, properly-skilled rider. He launched Circuit Based Training at Donington Park in 1997, with the idea of letting people learn in a safe environment before venturing onto public roads. The school has now taught thousands of new and established riders. In 2001 CBT moved to Mallory Park in Leicestershire, where it continues to attract clients from all over the UK and abroad. Rupert Paul started riding in 1978, and immediately developed an unhealthy addiction to unreliable Italian motorcycles. He qualified as a mechanic in 1983, and joined Performance Bikes as a road tester/dogsbody in 1985. In the intervening years he has edited Performance Bikes, Bike, What Bike? and the award-winning MCN Sport, and ridden everything from 1920s flat-tankers to MotoGP bikes. Rupert has long been fascinated by the art of riding a bike well. In 1988 he organised the first public track day, and in the early 1990s grew the concept to a three-day course for 100 PB readers at the fearsome Nurburgring circuit in Germany. He has written many articles on motorcycle control, rider psychology and riding technique. He regularly writes for MCN, Bike, PB and Classic Bike.
