BIKE MARSHALS BIO
Bikemarshals was the brainchild of Mark Anson from the Wirral, he got together a group of likeminded bikers to support charity events such as egg and toy runs etc with the aim of helping to
make these events safer. This is still the number one aim of the group some 12 year down the line.
As the group expanded and got busier through time, Mark found it difficult to coordinate Bikemarshals and operate his classic wedding car hire business, so he handed ownership off the group to his ‘right hand’ marshal Barrie Green. We still consider Mark as our ‘spiritual leader’ and we are extremely grateful for his foresight in forming Bikemarshals all those years ago.
Being on motorcycles gives us the ability to have a visible mobile prescence to maintain an agile and positive influence to other road users whilst providing a safety net to events.
Bike Marshals are first aid trained and we have a retired member of the Ambulance Service on our team to provide mobile response as quickly as possible.
We work with event planners across the Country to promote and ensure that road safety is always of paramount importance, making sure everybody gets from A to B safely.
Supporting Local Causes
Many of our riders are also volunteer Blood Bikers and we work with many different charities throughout the year, from Alder Hey Children's Hospital to BBC's Children in Need.
As well as mobile support, we can provide static marshals to provide a visible presence at strategic points where the risk of incidents/accidents is higher.
Bike Marshals are trained to use de-fibrilators and our bikes carry de-fibs. We'd prefer them to stay in the panniers but they are they and ready to use on the very rare occasion they are needed.
