Learning to Ride a Motorbike in London
There are many reasons for learning to ride in London, whether you want to hop on a moped, scooter or motorbike for fun, to commute or for work! As London is such a busy city, you must make sure you are always focussed when driving and look out for possible dangers that could involve pedestrians or other road users.
Check you are able to see other vehicles at all times by wearing a helmet with a good field of view and wearing glasses or contact lenses if you have poor vision.
You also need to make sure other road users can see you! The best way to achieve this is by wearing suitable bright, reflective clothing, making sure all of your lights and indicators are working and that you stick to the highway code.
When driving at night, we highly recommend buying high-viz items that are reflective. We sell lots of high-viz items over on the RideTo Store which are also great to wear when it’s raining as well.
Another important factor to consider when you learn to ride a motorbike in London is making sure you have good security measures for your bike. There are a range of different lock types out there such as disc locks, chain locks and anchors.
When you are moving around London you may want a lighter option that easier to transport but when parking your motorbike overnight and especially if you park on the road, think about having a more substantial lock/locks to protect it from thieves.
