Two DAM stalwarts


Bob presents Mike with his gift

Bob Brown, Mike Cope, John Cudden, Mick Alder

BikeWise 2011 was the venue for two long serving members of Durham Advanced Motorcyclists to receive a token of thanks from the club in recognition of their hard work in helping to form DAM and making it such a successful club that we know today.

It was fitting that retired motorcycle Sgt,  Bob Brown (BikeWise Training) who as our local IAM examiner, was instrumental with Mike Cope in forming the group  in 1995, was able to present Mike with a gift from the committee.

Mike has over the years performed allsorts of roles within the group both within Training and the Committee.

John Cudden was one of the first to take his test with the newly formed group in 95/96 and went on to become an observer, senior observer and group training officer. Retired PC, Mick Alder (BikeWise Training) was the motorcycle instructor for the police and together with Ali Bonar worked closely with John on the Training side of DAM so Mick made the presentation to John on behalf of the committee.

Both Mike & John have put vast amounts of their own time into making DAM the successful IAM group that it is today. They have made a huge contribution towards Road Safety in County Durham

The BikeWise ‘team’ feel proud and privileged to have been able to work closely with Mike & John and wish them all the best in their ‘retirement’
