Our Instructors & Staff
- Site Manager of Camrider Warwick
- DSA Cardington Qualified Instructor
- 30 years of riding experience
Mike joined the Cam Rider team in June 2013 to help cover Warwick. He draws on 5 decades of riding, having ridden in 4 continents, and experienced 6 fields of riding, but still admits ‘I am still learning’. Fully approved by the DSA. His teaching style is rider-centric, making them feel at ease so they can take full advantage of the guidance he offers. Mixing a dry sense of humour with quips about music, to other road uses and himself. Once met never to be forgotten.
Steph has had a keen interest in motorcycles since a young age where her father would tinker in the garage; with this as soon as Steph could, she took her CBT at the age of 17 which then opened up endless possibilities for her. After passing tests with flying colours with Camrider ourselves, she then began her motorcycle career in Instructing.
Steph enjoys race-track days on her Kawasaki ZX6R, and exploring new places with a little bit of off-road and mostly touring around the UK and Europe on her Triumph Tiger XCX 800. Steph also spent many years doing motocross and enduro style riding!
Mike is our ever capable Managing Director for Warwick and Lead DAS instructor
Martin has been riding for 42 years on the road following a couple of years riding trials. Instructing since March 2022. His current rides are Harley and KTM. Martin’s spare time is taken up Mountain biking, snowboarding and walking the dog.
We believe that learner motorcyclists deserve the best possible environment to train in and that high-quality machinery and equipment are not just an advantage, but are essential.
In particular, we are the only local company to use the New Yamaha XJ600 motorcycles that are compliant with the European Third directive and also have our own manufactured rider protection bars. We also use new fuel injected Yamaha YBR125cc motorcycles and our mopeds are all-new Piaggio Zip 50cc with a unique rider protection system.
We are proud that we are the only regional company to utilise new machinery that has specifically designed rider safety equipment to help you through your test.
