THE world's fastest biker is backing a campaign which will give Lancashire riders the chance to avoid prosecution for motoring offences by taking a special course.

Nick Sanders, the fastest man to travel around the world on a bike, backed the groundbreaking Rider Intervention and Developing Experience (RiDE) course, a joint initiative between the county council's Road Safety Group and the police.

From this month, bikers caught for offences including driving without due care and attention and non-compliance of traffic signals, can instead take the two day course at a cost of £185.
