Trevor - Trevor is the owner of Ridesure. He started the business in 2003 having stumbled onto the site at Dunsfold. He has been riding since having a BSA Bantam scrambler at the age of 11, through the age of the Fizzie (1975) on his Garelli Tiger, various 125’s, 250’s through the 70’s and 80’s and so on until the present.
In that time he has dabbled in motocross and enduro’s ( too old now though). He has been a Senior Observer in the Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists, RoSPA Gold Advanced Rider as well as DSA Approved and full time Instructor since 2002 after being an aircraft engineer for 28 years.
Audra - Audra is a partner in Ridesure, she actually learnt to ride and took her test with us in 2003. 3 years later after riding a GSXR400, a Bandit 400 and three 600 Fazers she qualified to instruct. She also runs the office and the novice intro’s are her baby.
Roy - Roy is one of the stalwarts of Ridesure , having been with us since the beginning. He has ridden for the whole of his ( considerably long ) life starting off at 16 in 1974 on his mum’s moped. Progressing at 17 to a Matchless 650 with sidecar. As a hairy beast he rode and owned all sorts, and now as a hairless one he rides a BMW 1250 GS adventure.
Roy is unflappable and great fun as well as very thorough and meticulous. Audra says he has the patience of a saint.
Bryan - Bryan took his full moped test at 16 and then rode for 4 years on motorbikes thinking he had a full licence. After discovering the error of his ways he took his motorbike test and has been riding ever since. Bryan became a fully qualified Instructor in 2010 and is full time.
Mark N - Mark has been riding for 40 years as of 2018 on and off road. He passed his motorcycle test in 1978, and holds a Direct Access and CBT instructor certificate from the Driving Standards Agency at Cardington. An active member of the IAM, Mark has ridden all over both the UK and Europe. He has owned a wide variety of motorcycles from Harley Davidson to GSXR sports bikes, and pretty much everything in between. He maintains all his own bikes. Both his sons got their licences here, which is how he ended up working for us.
Andy - Andy was one of our students. Since passing his bike test he has taken up track days, lots of them. He has a GSXR750 for this pastime and takes it all over Europe. He has now just taken up off roading and has been studying the byways from very close up. Andy has a laid back character and we are glad to have him as CBT instructor with us.
Barrie - Barrie has been riding in excess of 30 years, since passing his full motorcycle test in 1986. Initial riding was for commuting to and from work all over the south-east of England. In 2005 Barrie became a member of Thames Vale Advanced Motorcyclists (TVAM). He passed his advanced test in February 2006 and has gone on to become a National Observer. Barrie regularly organises and leads group rides and has toured extensively in the UK and Europe. Barrie continues to ride for pleasure as well as business. His claim to fame is that he designed and managed the building of the IAM HQ building in Chiswick. Another BMW rider.
Alex - Alex has been with Ridesure since 2008. He is a qualified Advanced Police motorcyclist a member of the IAM and both CBT and Direct Access qualifield.
He regularly tours Europe and is looking forward to many more years of riding the Alps and further afield.
Tim - Tim learned to ride and drive at an 'early age' but took up 4 wheels and then worked in the emergency services for many years, finally taking the 2 wheel test in the 1990's.
Since being on two wheels Tim has been lucky enough to become a CBT Instructor, an IAM Advanced Rider and Observer, a BikeSafe Assessor, the Lead Firebike Team Rider, a Moto Safety Rider and a Biker Down Instructor.
On top of that Tim organises European Trips and Tours for friends and colleagues and has found some cracking biking roads with less traffic on them!
