We want to give the North East biking fraternity the opportunity to get up close and personal with some real legends, and there aren’t many better than Niall Mackenzie to kick off the series.”

The Trojan Rooms is part of the award-winning, family-run hotel, The Avalon, and is situated right in the centre of Whitley Bay. The bar is well known for its live music, events, food and drink.
