IAM RoadSmart have joined up with a number of other motorcycling interest groups to become founder members of the National Motorcyclists Council (NMC). The NMC’s initial members are ourselves plus The Auto Cycle Union, The British Motorcyclists Federation, The Motorcycle Action Group and The Trail Riders Fellowship. The coalition will work together on motorcycle public policy issues with a broad aim to “help assure a positive and sustainable future for motorcycling.” The NMC’s Goals are:
• “To research, inform and debate the sustainability of motorcycling, and secure fair treatment for motorcyclists and motorcycling.”
• “To provide single voice positions on issues of key importance to the motorcycle world as a whole”.
• “To provide thought leadership on a range of issues that impact upon motorcycling”.
• To act as a force multiplier by combining organisations strengths.
The NMC will be launched virtually on Friday 5 March with a website and a manifesto for motorcyclists so please watch this space for more news.
