LS2 Helmets

Devitt logo

Devitt Insurance

Devitt Insurance have donated the funds to enable TBE to purchase a Honda Varadero 125cc motorcycle. This motorcycle will be used to teach non-riders how to ride from first principles. So far the charity has only been able to help those who have ridden in the past, but now we will be able to get those who never had the opportunity to ride to experience the feelings of freedom and excitement that two wheels can offer.

holiday safe

Holiday Safe

Infinity Insurance Solutions offer a range of travel insurance policies and cover levels, to suit any budget and trip, including Single Trip, Multi-Trip, Cruise, Longstay and Backpacker, Sports and Winter Sports. The holiday insurance covers motorcycles as well and for every policy they sell, £1 is donated to The Bike Experience.

Supporters of TBE:


Castle Combe Circuit

A wonderful circuit near Chippenham, running bike track days, safety days and race meets. It was where Talan first got back on a bike, and where Talan/Russ set up the Bike Experience in 2011.

ie spark plugs, oil, air filters and chains.

Awards For All

Awards For All – Part of The Big Lottery Fund

The Bike Experience has been awarded a grant to help teach disabled motorcyclists how to ride again. Without the support of the lottery the charity would not have been able to operate in its second year. This award has been a complete life saver and will allow us to continue, to increase awareness and keep on changing lives.


Metzeler focus on the highest quality standards and accuracy in manufacturing. At Metzeler most of the people are enthusiastic motorcycle riders themselves.
