Chief Constable Launches 20th Anniversary BikeWise Event

MB3cChief Constable Launches 20th Anniversary BikeWise Event
Chief Constable, Mike Barton helped stunt rider Dave Coates test out his quad bike ahead of this Sunday’s BikeWise event.
This is the 20th anniversary of the popular fun day which hosts a range of motorbike related displays and other attractions at Police Headquarters, Aykley Heads in Durham.
Chief Constable, Mike Barton said: “This is a great family event, there is something for everyone to enjoy! I am proud to be hosting the 20th anniversary of BikeWise which will also be the last major event to be held at Aykley Heads before we move over the road to the new headquarters building at the end of the summer.”
The attractions this year include:
- Breathtaking stunt demonstrations from Dave Coates Stunt Show and Paul Swift from ‘Precision Driving’. There will be displays from the police dog section, the police helicopter will be dropping in and there will be a range of fabulous stunt teams and individual riders showing off their fantastic skills!
- TT Legend, John McGuinness, just back from winning his 21st TT at the Isle of Man will also be at the event – come along and meet him.
- There will be musical entertainment from local band Kimera and Scotland’s leading tribal band ‘Clann An Drumma’.
On a serious note the bike cops will be promoting road safety and there will be a focus on cycle safety which will be headed up by the 3SIXTY Stunt Bike Team.
Entry to the site is from 10am and costs £2 for adults with under-16s allowed in free of charge. Once costs have been met all proceeds are distributed to local good causes.
There will be clear directions and officers on duty will steer visitors to the appropriate parking sites.
