Visit Hein Gericke, Darlington's 7th birthday party this Saturday (3rd July)

Saturday 3rd July sees the 7th birthday of Hein Gericke Darlington and to mark the occasion the team have some special events in the planning.

To mark the occasion and ensure it is an event to remember they have arranged for the 'xtreme wheelie machine' to be on site all day. This is a specially designed platform with a real motorcycle, normally a Kawasaki ZX6R strapped to it on which you can have a go at the black art of pulling a huge stonker of a wheelie, in total safety with no threat of flipping it! You will need a full bike licence and be over 18 to ride. Free to ride with all purchases over £10. (But we need photo's of you on it for our Gallery !!)

The day promises to be excellent fun so why not call in grab a coffee and doughnut.
Mick & Bob from BikeWise Training and Ali from the bike section will be there all day to answer any questions you have for them (or to book your BikeWise Training course)

Visit at 171/179 Northgate, Darlington DL1 1UB or call for more details on 01325 464 664.
