DocBike was born in 2013 by Dr Ian Mew, an air ambulance intensive care consultant and PC Chris Smith QPM, an advanced police motorcycle instructor. They realised that trying to put motorcyclists back together after a crash simply didn't work. Today, the charity is expanding across the UK, aiming to put a critical care doctor or advanced paramedic, on a motorcycle, associated with an air ambulance in every county.
Whilst the riders are there to help pick up the pieces after a crash, research and evidence base forms the cornerstones of all of the work that the charity does. By analysing why motorcyclists crash and investing in research, they aim to better inform motorcyclists on how they can avoid being involved in a crash and help them to become more skilful riders, enhancing everyone's experience of motorcycling. Evidence-based tips on how to avoid being in a crash are available on their website.
Consisting of 3 modules over a 3-4 hour session, the idea is to offer people the ability to train in essential life skills and the knowledge (based on operational Fire-fighters training) to help them cope should they encounter or be involved in a road traffic collision, rather than just give them information on the consequences.
