Paul at Ridesafe has been increasingly frustrated at not been able to give blood for many years having had Glandular Fever himself. This thankfully is cleared now that the NHS has removed Glandular Fever from the list of "at risk" donors.

Frustration is increased however, in that despite having been a donor for several years, his wife Sonia is now barred having had to have transfusions after child birth. So Paul and Sonia's idea - probably the next best thing - is to help get it there!

Although unable to commit to regular shifts due to family and business commitments, Paul at Ridesafe has joined Weston Freewheelers EVS. Whilst able to carry out occasional runs from the off-duty list, Paul's primary objective is in helping with the all important Rider Training, both for prospective and existing riders.

Ridesafe has undertaken to help in training, new and current riders alike, through to their RoADAR (RoSPA) test. All existing riders have to take three-yearly assessment checks; why not take the opportunity to take it a step further and go for RoSPA Gold?

Paul will arrange initial assessments with each rider as and when needed, putting in place training sessions as required, dependent on current riding levels and practice available. Existing riders please contact Paul directly. New or prospective members should firstly contact us by using the contact form.
