BikeWise Mini Bike Club awarded the DCC Chairman's Medal

BikeWise Mini Bike Club has been presented with the Durham County Council Chairman's Medal.

The Chairman's Medal is the council's highest honour. It is presented to individuals, groups and organisations throughout County Durham to recognise significant achievement and outstanding effort in all walks of life.
The very first Chairman’s Medal was presented to Durham County Cricket Club in recognition of their success in winning the prestigious ‘Friends Provident Trophy’ in 2007.
Since then the medal has been presented to numerous organisations and people from all walks of life.

The award, for Motorcycle & Road Safety in County Durham, was presented by The Chairman of the Council, Councillor Dennis Morgan and was received on behalf of the club by Dale Clement who has been a member of the club since it’s formation in April of 2007.

Dale is a perfect example of what the clubs aspirations where, when it was formed.

He has attended virtually every meeting of the club with his grandfather Dave (who helps to marshal the meetings) and has subsequently on reaching 16yrs obtained his first driving licence and took to the roads on his moped after first completing his CBT via an ACE Scholarship (Provided by Jim Rimmer of ACE Motorcycle Training). Dale has travelled to and from college on his bike and now that he is 17yrs has gone on after further instruction at ACE, to pass his full motorcycle test and now rides a Honda 400cc motorcycle.

Dale recently completed a day’s post test training on our own BikeWise Training and as a result will soon progress to take his Institute of Advanced Motorists test with DAM in the near future.

BikeWise intends to ‘sponsor’ Dale and future members of the club who take to the roads on two wheels to help them achieve the IAM standard which will give them the skills / knowledge to be safe riders for the rest of their lives.
