South Lancashire Advanced Motorcyclists (SLAM) is an IAM RoadSmart Local Group and a registered charity.  We are a volunteer organisation, relying on the hard work and contribution of our Members.

Our aim is to improve Road Safety in our area by providing advanced motorcycle rider courses and other related events.

SLAM was formed in 1997 – over 23 years ago.  In that time, we have directly improved the safe riding of around 60 riders in every one of those years – that’s around 1400 riders in the Lancashire area whose chances of remaining safe have been improved by training with SLAM.  Something of which we are very proud!

On top of that there are probably twice as many people who have been touched by the efforts and activities of our band of committed and passionate Observers, and whose riding has improved as a result – whether through assessment rides, Ride Safe Back Safe, BikeSafe, Taster Days, or simply talking about safer riding whenever the opportunity arises.

That’s over 3,500 people whose chances of riding safely have been improved - and that is what SLAM is all about.

As well as road safety training, we also have a very active Social side, with 3 or more ride outs, and 2 social meetings each month, plus trips, holidays and many other bike related activities.

We hope you'll get involved and join us!
