Manchester 500

Manchester 500 is a dedicated IAM Motorcycle group. We have been around for more than 30 years delivering the IAM Skills for life programme. Our observers are all volunteers but we

deliver the programme in a professional way and take what we do seriously.

Our program is based around a set course with one to one coaching generally on the first and third Sunday of every month (March to October/early November). We try to allocate a different observer to the associate for each run, however we are flexible and if that does not work for the individual then we do offer a dedicated observer. If people cannot attend on Sundays, we can usually sort them with midweek or evening rides.
