Who we are
Edinburgh & District Advanced Motorcyclists (EDAM) is a local bike club affiliated to the Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM). Our primary aim is to improve the riding skills and road safety of bikers in the Edinburgh and surrounding areas by delivering the IAM’s How to be a Better Rider skills programme, through a team of highly trained volunteer observers.
EDAM is a registered charity in our own right (No. SC023692).
EDAM can help you in the following ways:
- FREE Ride Check (a 1 hour ride with an IAM qualified observer)
- Deliver the Skills for Life course (observed rides and IAM advanced test)
- Social events and ride-outs organised by experienced riders (usually one or two a week during the summer months)
- Other events aimed at improving knowledge, skills and awareness
