What is happening in the BikeWise 'world' over the next couple of weeks

Beware of new surface dressing !! (Weardale)

If you are going to be out and about in Weardale (A689rd) on your bike – be aware that there is a lot of re-surfacing going on ‘up the dale’

Last week two local motorcyclists were involved in a crash with a car between Frosterley and Wolsingham, when it appears that the car has gone out of control on the loose chippings and collided with the motorcyclists who were travelling in the opposite direction. Extensive resurfacing has now been done between the A68 Harperley roundabout and A689 Wolsingham – Please Take Care…..

Dave Badcock  Iron Butt ‘veteran’ Dave Badcock from Northumberland covers more miles in a year than most of us would consider ‘sensible’ in a lifetime……

Dave’s most recent ride was to travel to America – and then go North to Alaska where he hired a Harley and then he did what he does best – ride it…….    around Alaska….

NO…. not Ossie and Sharon, but our very own Ashley & Peter, who have both completed BikeWise Training days and subsequently passed their IAM Tests with Durham Advanced Motorcyclists.

They ‘tied the knot’ recently – thought they might have signed the register on a motorcycle but I suppose Peter had to make some concessions !!
