Motorcycle Charity Steers Youngsters Away From Illegal Off Road Riding, Huddersfield

West Yorkshire Police

Police have praised bike enthusiasts for their drive to kick illegal motorcycle use out of their community by kickstarting youngsters on a path to safer riding.

The Huddersfield Neighbourhood Policing Team is supporting the work of Team KickStart in the Ashbrow Ward, which is approaching its first anniversary after launching last April to provide local teenagers with an outlet for their interest in bikes.

The team now has around 100 teens taking part and supports young people who have an interest in motorcycles.

It teaches them to ride safely and legally and also develop their skills and potentially careers in servicing bikes and mechanical engineering.

The project, which is run by locals Joy Edwards and Junior Montano, began on April 18 2021 and has now become a full-fledged charity.
