As a new associate with the group I had visions of a pipe and slipper brigade quoting rules and regulations and ticking me off for exceeding the speed limit by 2mph.
How wrong was I!? I have just returned from my first Coddiwomple (group ride) and I admit I was a little apprehensive. I am quite an inexperienced motorcyclist and normally ride alone. There was no need to be. Everybody was so welcoming and friendly, and the pre-ride brief ob group riding etiquette told me all I needed to know. For the full-day adventure, not only did I feel safe and learn some really useful new skills, but it felt like I was out riding with friends I have know for years. Thankyou!

As we now break for Christmas I just wanted to thank you for the journey you’ve taken me in our first “term”.
I really appreciate your honest assessment of my driving and for your great insight into areas for improvement.
I am learning lots of gems from your positive teaching and thank you for your patience as I battle to master the “system” and the “gear brake overlap” and my often too cautious approach to acceleration! I always look forward to our drives and to your insightful de-briefs.
From our first meeting you put me at ease and created the environment for me to experiment, make mistakes and improve.
I really do appreciate the time you give voluntarily.
You are great ambassador for ROSPA and I wish you best wishes for your assessment next weekend.
Rest assured I will practicing lots over the Christmas break and hopefully by the time we next meet In Jan-19 I will have made significant improvements.
Have a great Christmas and a peaceful New Year and enjoy the Christmas dinner next weekend!
Take care and keep safe.
