An online scheme which aims to help motorcyclists avoid accident black spots is being launched.

‘Your Route to a Better Ride’ which can be found on the Handle it or Lose it website (http://www.handleitorloseit.com/) encourages riders to share information about hazardous road conditions.

Yeah,great idea.Went for a 50 mile run on my favourite bit of road last night.Taking it nice and easy which was just as well as some clod had lost a load of grit on a corner which would have had me off if I had been going at my usual pace.Came round the corner and there it was,nice,same situation nearly had me stuffing my bike into a stone wall last year.

Just had a look at that site Bob,pretty impressive.got a sense that maybe it`s from the M.O.T. or the Police in an attempt to get the message across without putting people off.loads of good stuff on there particularly for newcomers to biking.
