  • Exceptional Motorcycle Training Experience! I recently completed my A1 motorcycle training with Safe Riders in Shoreham, and I couldn't be more impressed. Steve Underwood, the lead instructor, is an absolute gem. His clarity, authority, and dedication to ensuring a comprehensive understanding of techniques and rules stood out. Steve went the extra mile, repeatedly covering various aspects, and took the time to explore different routes during training. His commitment to safety was evident as he provided valuable insights and watch-outs. I highly recommend Safe Riders, especially with Steve Underwood at the helm. Top-notch instruction and a truly rewarding experience! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
