Fancy a FREE biker’s breakfast? Well, ride along to Upright Derbyshire’s event (details in the newsletter). Sometimes we forget what it’s like to get back on a bike after some time off it, although lockdown has reminded us. It’s good to read about someone else’s experience, so follow the link to read more. With everyone staying at home for holidays the roads are busier than ever. Lincolnshire Police are warning that staycation traffic may be adding to accident figures. If you are looking for your next Winter project bike, or spares for an old classic, with show dates throughout September the Normous Newark Autojumble is the place to go. Ever wonder how lady cyclists dealt with pests on the road, take a look at page 9. Lawyer Nick Freeman tells us how new EU laws will make vehicle ownership much more expensive. Do you need a Biker Down refresher? SYSRP (South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership) is back in full swing with its Biker Down courses. They are also putting on Safer Driving at Work sessions which shows examples of real life court drama. If you run a company employing drivers why not send them along. It’s bike security, an initiative called RideShare, electric bikes and much more in this week’s pickings from the internet. A new variable-rigidity chain bike clothing material might be the future of the suit that you are wearing. You might also find out whether Apple AirTags are really better than a dedicated tracker for recovering your bike if it’s stolen. Don’t forget: if you have any news that you would like to share with your SAM friends, their families and all of our supporters, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’m away on holiday on the bike next week but the newsletter should be coming your way. If it doesn’t, you’ll know that Janis and I were having far too much fun to circulate it. Either that or the internet was down!
To ensure that anyone interested in SAM activities, the SAM and Survival Skills newsletters are also on the SAM website; so, everyone can read, enjoy and share. Until next week…
Stay healthy and ride safe, Ed.
