It goes on to claim that effective road sweeping could potentially save more lives than motorcyclists cutting their speeds.
The BMF is writing to every highway authority in the country to urge them to clean up their roads - particularly in areas used by two wheeled vehicles such as near pavements and at corners and bends.
Because motorcycle and pedal tyres are so much narrower, contact with even a small amount of loose material on the road can cause a loss of traction, added the BMF.
Local authorities are quite prepared to spend a small fortune on traffic calming and other anti-speeding measures, but here's a bit of good house keeping that we think will bring benefits at minimum cost," said BMF government relations executive Chris Hodder.
The BMF has produced a booklet for local authorities called Rubbish Roads Ahead which was commended by Cycling Training Council's campaign & Policy Manager Roger Geffen.
“Rubbish roads are as much as a problem for cyclists as they are for powered two-wheelers," he said.
