Meet the instructors. We are not as scary as we look in the pics, Honest!A little info on each of the team.
PJ as she prefers to be called is firstly female, not that many of these around, so you are being taught by someone fairly unique before we even begin! She passed her test at 17 so that is X amount of years ago, you know the rules. She was self taught so her early riding years consisted of a lot of trauma, damage and cost. One of the reasons she became an instructor so you don't have to go through the same.
She is very experienced at this and has held an instructor qualification for over 14 years. She passed her CBT1 at Cardington in sep 08 and has not long after her DAS assessment. Some qualified riders may know of Paula as she works for a number of other local bike schools. This is a big advantage as she has experience of a lot of different teaching methods and areas of training.
PJ has done a number of other things since learning to ride and instruct, namely a BMW off road course and the Jimmy Fireblade Wheelie School. So she is a very experienced rider, she owns a lots of Yamaha MT09s and a Fireblade. Point is, as with us all, we are enthusiasts first, instructors second and we have a wealth of experience of all different types of riding to draw on. As you can see by this picture PJ knows how to get riding a bike across, the two young lads were up and running in minutes. Not sure what PJ plans this year but you can bet a number of Rallys will be top of her agenda.
