Stories About The Most Admirable Bikers & INNOVV Dashcam You May Not Know
Motorcycle and car are both reliable and common forms of transportation in today’s world, while a motorcycle offers a number of clear benefits that a car could not provide. Besides that riding a motorcycle produces a feeling of freedom that is hard to replicate with a car, a motorcycle’s fast acceleration and ease of maneuverability far exceed that of a car.
Therefore, in some cases, people would prefer or must use motorcycles instead of cars for their unique advantages, fast acceleration and ease of maneuverability. For example, when something urgent needed to courier in severe road conditions, a motorcycle performs better than a car. In UK and Ireland, a group of motorcycles have been widely used in handling these tasks, and they are called blood bikes. It consists of a network of largely independent registered charities, whose members are all unpaid volunteers, providing blood bike courier services in collaboration with their local healthcare authorities.

“A blood bike is a motorcycle used to courier urgent and emergency medical items including blood, X-rays, samples, drugs, and documentation between hospitals and other healthcare facilities.”
Look at the history of Blood Bike, the first Blood Bike volunteer group was established in 1962 in England by Margaret Ryerson and her husband. Later, a number of other Blood Bike groups operated in the UK and Ireland. Some original groups are no longer operating, but other groups emerged that provide similar services, including Freewheelers EVS, Nottinghamshire Blood Bikes, Severn Freewheelers, Blood Bikes Wales, Blood Bike Leinster and others.
Among them, several groups have received the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service for their contributions, which is the highest award that can be made to a voluntary group. Freewheelers EVS is the first Blood Bike group to win the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service in 2008. North West Blood Bikes Lancashire & Lakes received one in 2016, Northumbria Blood Bikes won that reward in 2017, and etc.
Queen's Award for Voluntary Service
Countless lives have been saved through Blood Bike’s services. It is reported that they respond to an average of more than 100,000 requests per year.
However, motorcyclists are classified as vulnerable road users and motorcycle is regarded as the most dangerous form of transport when compared to walking, cycling and various four wheeled vehicles. Due to the unstable conditions faced by the Blood Bike charities and the added dangers of journeys at night and in adverse weather, despite advanced rider training, there have been accidents, some of which have been fatal.
For instance, on 28 November 2016, Martin Dixon of Bloodrun EVS (Cleveland and North Yorkshire) was killed while on duty in a traffic collision. On 5 May 2018, Russell Curwen of North West Blood Bikes was killed while on duty in a traffic collision.
Those injuries and deaths are painful to all of us, it is urgent and necessary that we must do something to better protect those great Blood Bikers. Besides the routine motorcycle training program, Blood Bikers need more protections during riding in severe weather conditions. We are honored that INNOVV motorcycle cameras have been widely used to better protect them. For now, INNOVV K2 motorcycle camera, INNOVV K5 dashcam and INNOVV K3 dashcam have been assisted these Blood Bikers in United Kingdom.
