Geoffrey Salt, has been an IAM RoadSmart member for 25 years. Keen to share his enthusiasm, and everything he has gained from the experience, he produced a blog. He is proud of each and every one of the associates he's met and trained as he tells us in his own words 'it’s been quite a journey'. It was November 1996 when I was walking around the NEC bike show when I spotted the IAM RoadSmart stand. I got chatting to Mike Barker, who happened to be the Chief Observer for my local IAM Derby Group. I explained to him that now that the family had grown up and I’d come back into biking, I felt I needed some additional help to cope with the volume of traffic that had built up over the previous 27 years.
