WaBAM is the local IAM RoadSmart affiliated bike group that covers Bath, Swindon and Salisbury post code areas.

We’re a mixed bunch of people, but with one shared passion – riding bikes – all sorts of bikes – sports, customs, nakeds, scooters, trailies and tourers.

WaBAM has over 35 qualified trainers who operate all year round. So if you want to ride through the winter, it’s not a problem. Although we draw the line at ice or snow!!

The whole idea is to pass on the essential skills needed to make safe, smooth progress in all road conditions, and help you to avoid common mistakes and bad habits.

The riders we work with have a first time sucess rate of over 96% when taking the IAM RoadSmart Advanced Motorcycle Test (which increases to 100% if a retest is required).

WaBAM is a registered charity: everyone of us is a volunteer and an enthusiast.

WaBAM also has an active social calendar, including monthly group rides and evening meets. Some members organise trips, both in the UK and abroad, whilst others get involved in running the group and attending local events.

There is always a friendly atmosphere and we work on the basis that there’s always something new to learn, and we enjoy riding bikes!
